    Fr. 341 $100 1880 Silver Certificate Extremely Fine This note has been off the market since it was last offered in the 1977 Atlanta ANA sale. It realized $4,100 as lot 3588 and was graded as Very Fine which we believe to fall somewhere between ultra conservative and just plain wrong. The note is beautifully bright and it retains much of its original embossing from the pressure of the plates. The James Monroe vignette is printed with such sharpness that it imparts a photographic clarity to his portrait. The note has three outsized margins and a bottom margin that is more than adequate. Only a single uncirculated example is known and that piece resides in the ANA Museum. Below that there about two About Uncirculateds and an EF-AU, and below that comes this beautiful note. This pretty piece would slip right in to a definitive high-end type set and its appearance at auction for the first time in a quarter century should generate considerable excitement. In September of 2000 we sold the EF-AU for $38,500, and it would not surprise us at all if two years later this handsome rarity approached that level.
