    The Third Finest Graded Example Of Only Fourteen Pieces Known

    Fr. 97 $10 1875 Legal Tender PMG Very Fine 30.
    Barely a dozen Fr. 97's are known, and there is not a single uncirculated piece among them. Of that number, only a PMG Fine 12 example has been publicly available in past six years. This note, which was once part of the Tom Flynn collection that we sold in 2008, is easily within the top half in the census. It is tied for the finest graded by PMG and features excellent color, ample margins, and even wear. An outstanding rarity that, if it were a U. S. coin, would undoubtedly sell for a six-figure amount.
