    Highly Desirable Fr. 160 PMG 25

    Fr. 160 $50 1880 Legal Tender PMG Very Fine 25.
    A rare Friedberg number with a population of just 17 and we know that four of those serial numbers are permanently impounded in government collections. Our consignor was victorious in his pursuit of this $50 at our May 1999 auction. This example faces up at a higher grade and is one of the nicer known Fr. 160 pieces. It is a plate letter A example with three very broad margins and is also encapsulated in a comment free third party holder. The top margin even reveals initials at back upper left of workmen who worked on the back plate. A considerable amount of interest will be directed toward this highly desirable Fr. 160 that also doubles as the plate note on page 73 of the Chambliss-Hessler reference.
