    Superb Gem 1880 Ten Dollar Silver

    Fr. 288 $10 1880 Silver Certificate Superb Gem New. This is the fourth spectacular Fr. 288 that we've sold from the same run of serial numbers. We sold three examples relatively recently: one in January of 1997 and another in January of 1999, both of which realized over $6000, and a third in May of this year which realized $7500. This piece is the equal of any of them, with terrific original embossing, broad margins and perfect paper quality. Fr. 288 is far scarcer than its type-mate, Fr. 289. About sixty 288's are known to exist, and there are over 130 Fr. 289's. Est. 7,500 up
