    Finest PMG Graded Fr. 45 $2 Legal Tender

    Fr. 45 $2 1875 Legal Tender PMG Gem Uncirculated 65 EPQ.
    An infrequently offered $2 Friedberg type in any condition. This is "Series A," shown in red on the face, and from the initial printing of these Allison-New $2 notes. Few are known today with perhaps 30 examples in all grades. This superlative note is currently the finest known and graded by PMG; finer than the Tom Flynn note we sold in April 2008 for $18,400 graded PMG Choice Uncirculated 64 EPQ (the second finest). Federal large size type is not generally at those levels consistently today, but exceptional notes such as this should always be evaluated strongly when available from a mature collection. The note is beautifully balanced on both sides with striking color and vibrancy. This stunner was purchased from our September 1987 auction. A real highlight in the Legal Tender notes offered here that will sell for many multiples of its acquisition cost.
    From The Mike Coltrane Collection.
