    Beautiful, Strictly Original Fr. 33

    Fr. 33 $1 1880 Legal Tender Superb Gem New. The Large Brown Seal Blue Serial Number Aces are a two-number type that is extremely popular and strikingly attractive. Fr. 32 and Fr. 33 combine for a total census of about 80 pieces, of which fewer than 30 are Fr. 33. The presently offered example is the "a" position piece from the plate, and it boasts an unusually large top margin. The note also has gorgeous, fully bright ink colors and easily perceptible deep, original embossing, not only of the serial numbers and seal but of many of the design elements. The bottom margin is nowhere near as broad as the top, but this is simply due to the excess margin at the top of this "a" position note. The bottom margin is fully broad enough to support the grade. CAA has sold only eleven Fr. 33's in all our sales combined, and only five of them graded New or better. This piece is one of the very finest of the few existing top-end examples. Est. 7,500up
