    Fr. 341. . .Second-Finest Known 1880 Hundred Dollar Silver Certificate

    Fr. 341 $100 1880 Silver Certificate About New. Only 23 examples of this number are known, and this is one of the very nicest. The only reported uncirculated note was formerly in the Bebee Collection. It is now in the ANA museum. Of the 23 known pieces, the one mentioned above is in the ANA museum, and four others are in government collections. Only this and one other are reported as AU. The note is beautifully margined, well centered on both sides and perfectly bright, and it has the eye appeal of an uncirculated piece. The note has been off the market since it last appeared at public auction 19 years ago. Opportunities to acquire Hundred Dollar Silvers of any number in any grade are few and far between. Only about fifty 1880 Hundreds are known for all varieties combined, with more than a dozen of those permanently impounded. Of the 40 theoretically available to collectors, only three compare with this piece for grade. After a quiet market period of about two years for important notes, prices have begun to pick up again. The combination of high grade and rarity has always been a challenge to estimate, but we would not be surprised to see this great note reach or exceed . . .
