    1875 $100 Legal--One of the Finest Known

    Fr. 169 $100 1875 Legal Tender Extremely Fine. This is only the third Fr. 169 that we have had the pleasure of offering. About a dozen examples are known in total, with the only note reported to be uncirculated in the ANA museum. This note has broad margins, excellent color, and a very attractive overall appearance. It's restoration-free, which is quite unusual for a note of this era and rarity. One of the known pieces is in the Smithsonian, and the ANA museum is holding two, leaving very few notes for the collecting public. 1875 Hundreds are a two-number type, with fewer than 20 pieces known for the two numbers combined.
