    Attractive Fr. 179 1880 $100 Legal Tender

    Fr. 179 $100 1880 Legal Tender PMG Choice Very Fine 35.
    A rare note, the population figure as reported in Track & Price is just 26 examples, but we know that eight of those serial numbers are in the Federal Reserve Bank collections of either Philadelphia, Dallas, or San Francisco. This is a delightful piece with a superior appearance for the grade. Through the third party holder, the bright, white paper and vibrant color on both face and back are clearly visible. Minor restorations mentioned on the holder are indeed minor and include two repaired small right edge tears. A further statistical look uncovers the fact that of the Fr. 179 notes in Track & Price that are available to collectors, our current offering comes in with the fifth highest grade.
