    Fr. 55 $2 1880 Legal Tender PMG Gem Uncirculated 66 EPQ. Fr. 55 is a sleeper number, with only 43 examples known in all grades combined according to the most recent Track & Price census. PCGS and PMG have graded only a total of twelve Fr. 55's, with none graded higher than 66 at either service. This one is a real beauty, with the margins and color that one would expect for the grade. PMG has noted, "Exceptional Paper Quality, " on the holder, and also mentioned that the piece is, "Ex Donlon." Bill Donlon was a pioneering paper-money dealer from Utica New York who was very active in the 60's and 70's. The most recent sale of a high-grade PMG or PCGS Fr. 55 was the PCGS 65 which sold for $5175 in an October 2005 sale.
