    High Grade Friedberg 167a Spread Eagle 1863 $100 Legal

    Fr. 167a $100 1863 Legal Tender PCGS Extremely Fine 40.
    A quick look at Track & Price seems to indicate a large number of pieces in higher grades than this lovely XF 40. But after boiling out repeats (one note sold six times), it turns out that this is the seventh nicest to reach the auction market. There has not been an XF on the market in over 15 years. Consequently, this is the first XF third-party graded piece to have ever auctioned. It is a pretty safe bet that most of the raw XFs would grade VF by today's more stringent standards. This piece also has minor restorations mentioned on the holder. Four examples sold as raw XFs between 1990 and 2005 at levels from $16,500 to $55,200. With nothing even resembling a recent comp, we are left to interpret from the far better and far worse offerings. We are pretty confident that this piece will enter six figures and we would expect a number right around...
