    Fr. 160 $50 1880 Legal Tender Rarity

    Fr. 160 $50 1880 Legal Tender PMG Very Fine 25.
    Another high-denomination Legal Tender note that is not often encountered. There are seventeen in the census, and four are recorded as being in foundational collections. The Franklin portrait face is at the left, and the large spiked red treasury seal is at the right. An attractive example overall. There are "Minor Restorations" noted by PMG on the encapsulation. Ex: CAA January 1999, lot 1231 where it realized $4,510. An excellent example of this tough type.
    From The Mike Coltrane Collection.
