    Vibrant Fr. 178 $100 Brown Seal "Lincoln" Legal Tender

    Fr. 178 $100 1880 Legal Tender PMG Very Fine 30.
    This is the only 1880 $100 Legal Tender with the large spiked brown seal, and it is scarce in all grades. There were 60,000 printed with 17 survivors listed on Track & Price. That is the same count cited in the 2014 Chambliss reference. A vibrant note with the appeal of higher grade. Displaying a vivid brown seal and perfectly framed; the green back is richly inked and printed. The "Tape Repair" cited by PMG consists of a mended 1/8-inch bottom center edge tear, seen mainly from the back. Ex: our 2017 ANA Platinum sale, lot 20039 (realized $22,325); our 2001 Cincinnati sale, lot 6823 (realized $8,250). This handsome note will please its next owner.
    From The Mike Coltrane Collection.
