    Description

    Beautifully Bright 1880 Fifty

    Fr. 161 $50 1880 Legal Tender PMG Choice Uncirculated 64. 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. PMG has noted "Restoration" on the holder. We suspect it is a closed pinhole since not a trace can been seen through the holder. The note is broadly margined with wonderful color, and strong eye appeal.
    From The John Ameen Collection
