    Description

    Fr. 41 $2 1862 Legal Tender Superb Gem New. This example from the Sedona collection is one of the, if not the finest example of this number that we have seen. It's a simply spectacular piece in every respect, with originality, perfect brightness and great margins all the way around. The note is printed on rather unusual paper, which has a very heavy distribution of small wood chips throughout. A few are visible on each side, but when the note is held to a light, many more become obvious. This paper, which we've only seen on a few other occasions, was the result of anti-counterfeiting experiments taking place in 1862 and 1863 before the government settled on one type of paper. While the paper difference does not rise to the level of an important separate variety, it certainly adds both visual and historical interest to an already spectacular piece of currency.
