    Description

    Fr. 42 $2 1869 Legal Tender PMG Choice Uncirculated 64 EPQ. This $2 Rainbow note is illustrated on both sides on page 62 of the Dauers' work. PMG has awarded this Rainbow Deuce its "Exceptional Paper Quality" comment and the note certainly seems to have earned it. It is the first of our two-dollar bills to use the Thomas Jefferson portrait. The Dauers mention in their book that..."Jefferson wrote his own epitaph, which ignores the numerous roles he played in public service, but stated very simply, 'author of the Declaration of Independence, the statute of Virginia granting religious freedom, and father of the University of Virginia'." The founding of the University, which was accomplished during Jefferson's retirement, was a lifelong goal. Rainbow Deuces are certainly not rare with over 400 examples known, but high-grade pieces, particularly those with the EPQ qualifier, are very hard to locate. PMG has graded only 17 examples at this level or higher.
