    Gem 1880 Brown Seal $50 Legal

    Fr. 161 $50 1880 Legal Tender Gem New. The striking "America" vignette that graces the right end of this beautiful type was engraved by Charles Burt, who likely also engraved the Benjamin Franklin Vignette that appears at the other end. This note is from the short run that has supplied collectors with almost all the high-grade examples of this type. It has perfect color, excellent margins, perfect back centering and all of its original embossing. It's a real beauty that will be certain to please its new owner. Est. 15,000up
