    Fr. 76 $5 1880 Legal Tender Superb Gem New. Simply perfection! The census numbers only about 50 Fr. 76's, fewer than ten of which are listed as uncirculated. This note was acquired by the owner of the Sedona collection in a 1982 auction, and it has been off the market since that time. The piece is utterly perfect, with broad, even margins, impeccable color, micrometer perfect centering of both sides and original embossing deep enough to please a Swiss yodler. CAA has handled only 21 Fr. 76's, and none of them could hold a candle to this flawless beauty. Fr. 76 is an underappreciated one-number type, and no one will ever own a finer example than this piece.
