    Fr. 179 $100 1880 Legal Tender Extremely Fine. We sold this note once before in our September, 2000 sale, where it was described: "A well margined, solid example of a rare number with only about 20 pieces known to exist. The only uncirculated note reported is in the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco, as are two of the other reported XFs, making this one of the four finest available to collectors. It's a problem-free piece with exceptional margins and excellent color." In that sale it was estimated at $10,000 and realized $15,400. Now, four years later as the market for important types is beginning to rebuild, it should do a fair bit better.
