    Fr. 248 $2 1896 Silver Certificate Very Choice New. This note, which is the tougher of the two Two Dollar Ed signature combinations, comes extremely close to the full Gem grade. It's well margined and beautifully bright, and it has excellent centering on both sides. These "tougher number" Educationals from all three denominations are almost universally ignored, with all the notes' being viewed as Type Notes. With very little premium to be paid, the wiser choice would seem to be the better signatures. While the gap is narrower in these Deuces than in the Ones and Fives, the better signatures still, in our opinion, are better buys.
