    Fr. 174 $100 1880 Legal Tender CGA Very Fine 20. Additions of this type to the census are far and few between and with this piece, the total for this Friedberg number sits at a paltry 17 notes. It must be noted though that 6 of the recorded issues are permanently impounded in institutional collections. This particular piece saw a moderate amount of time in channels of commerce before it was placed with other papers, as the toned paper here suggests. Apart from some soft and furled edges, the paper is wholly intact and the printing adequately bright. Along with the Fr. 172, 177, and 180 in this sale, the number of 1880 $100 Legal Tender rarities in one place is an anomaly.
