Rare Uncirculated Fr. 164

    Fr. 164 $50 1880 Legal Tender Very Choice New. Fr. 164 has one of the strangest survival figures of any large size notes. The number of recorded pieces is quite large--just a few under 200. Yet, not only are there no runs of uncirculated notes, but even single, uncirculated pieces are extremely rare--numbering less than 10. This note is broadly margined, beautifully centered on both sides, has good paper surfaces, and tremendous eye appeal. It's a new piece to the census, and as an uncirculated Fr. 164, it will no doubt attract considerable attention from collectors who have very few opportunities to obtain this number in this grade. This is a note that could wind up surprising us and running considerably over estimate. The Taylor note, which we sold last February, was graded XF-AU and more than doubled its $5,000 estimate--realizing $10,350.
