    Fr. 160-One of Seventeen Reported

    Fr. 160 $50 1880 Legal Tender PMG Very Fine 25 Net.
    The Huston-Rosecrans Large Red Seal $50 Legal Tender is far scarcer than its type-mate with the large brown seal. To date, a mere seventeen pieces have been recorded by serial number, with the last public auction appearance being a PMG 45 in 2007, which realized $37,375 in our September Long Beach Auction. PMG and PCGS population data indicates they have seen nothing finer than that piece, making this attractive mid-grade note a contender for any serious Large Size collection. The colors are excellent and the paper is attractive. Unfortunately, it received a comment and was net graded due to a restoration. The right edge has been helped a bit, though very little of the design was affected inside the frame lines.
