    PCGS Gem New 66PPQ Fr. 55 1880 $2 Legal Tender

    Fr. 55 $2 1880 Legal Tender PCGS Gem New 66PPQ. In our April 2008 sale of the Tom Flynn Collection, we sold a PMG 66 EPQ graded example of this number for $19,550. The rarity of the number, and the grade rarity were what propelled that piece to that level. Since then a couple of 64's and a 65 have been offered but it is the finest known pieces that run away at auction. A 67 has been graded by PCGS, but its whereabouts are unknown and it may never make a public auction appearance. This piece is a stunning, vividly colored example with original paper wave and full embossing. Even with a 67 in the population report, it should still be worth half the Tom Flynn realization.
