    Problem Free PMG Very Fine 20 Fr. 172

    Fr. 172 $100 1880 Legal Tender PMG Very Fine 20.
    Only eleven pieces are listed in the census, and of those, three are permanently impounded. This is a very odd Friedberg number, with five of the eleven examples known CU or better, while the other six include one damaged piece and five others which range in grade from Very Good to Very Fine. None of the circulated examples have sold since a net graded VF was offered as part of Tom Flynn's collection in April of 2008, with this piece off the market for a decade since we sold it in our May, 2001 CAA sale. It's been quite a while since a nice evenly circulated and problem free Fr. 172 has been available to collectors, and this one should create a bit of excitement.
