    Fr. 162 $50 1880 Legal Tender Fine. Fr. 162 is a very rare number, with only about 20 examples known in all grades combined. There are no uncirculated pieces known, and only a single About New which has been off the market since 1983. This note is a solid, respectable piece with a single short split repaired in the left face margin, but no other problems of any kind. It's very well margined, with exceptionally strong color for the grade. There are only a few notes in the popular Silver and Legal series for which rare numbers are available for virtually the same cost as their more-common type mates. This Fr. 162 is one of those numbers. Astute buyers should make an effort to acquire this important piece.
