    Description

    Fr. 33 $1 1880 Legal Tender Note Gem New. This is a beautifully margined fully bright example of a very scarce type. Its the ace that has the large brown seal and the blue serial numbers. Besides being a rare variety, the color combination makes this type one of the more aesthetically pleasing notes in the Legal Tender Series. Only 28 pieces of this Friedberg number are recorded and very few of those grade anywhere near as high as this pristine piece. We've sold only 11 examples of this type four of which graded this high. In May of 2000 we sold another piece from this serial number run that also graded Gem for $6,820.
