    Strikingly Handsome 1880 $100 Legal

    Fr. 176 $100 1880 Legal Tender PMG Very Fine 30. PMG has placed the comment "Good Color" on the back of their holder, and they certainly have that right since the bright orange seal and blue serial numbers are both at their full original brilliance--something that is seldom seen at the VF 30 level. This note places fourth out of a census of eleven pieces. The best of them, a PCGS 58, realized over $60,000 in 2005. Interestingly, that finest-known PCGS 58 is consecutive to this note. 1880 $100 Legals have always been one of this cataloger's favorite types, and of that elite group of notes, this large orange seal blue serial number combination has the most striking visual appeal. A problem-free beauty that belongs in the very finest Type Note collections.
