    Rare Fr. 165 1862 Spread Eagle Hundred

    Fr. 165 $100 1862 Legal Tender PMG Very Good 8 NET. PMG has noted, "Major Reconstruction," and they are indeed correct. When we last sold this piece in October of 1995, we described it, "Numerous repairs about the edges give this very rare Spread Eagle Hundred the appearance of a higher grade. Of the twelve known pieces, three are permanently off the market in government hands or private foundations. Of the remaining nine pieces, only three grade higher than this note, with none of them reaching Extra Fine. This is a classic rarity of American currency, and an opportunity to add a significant piece to your holdings." Since 1995, the census has gone up by only a single note, and there are still no examples known grading better than VF. The eagle itself is not touched by any restorations.
