    Spectacular Rainbow Deuce

    Fr. 42 $2 1869 Legal Tender PCGS Gem New 66PPQ. When we sold this note in January 2007, we used the following description, "Only two points below the note we sold last January for over $40,000, and this note certainly gives that one a run for eye appeal. It's a broadly margined, vividly colored, strictly original example of a note that is simply never seen in this high a grade. Ten years from now, we would be amazed if the PCGS census for 66PPQ and higher examples of Fr. 42 number over ten notes. A spectacular piece of currency that could easily elicit a runaway price." Over two years later, there are still a mere five pieces graded 66 and beyond--four 66s and the single 68 mentioned above.
