    Exciting Fr. 341 $100 Black-Back Silver Certificate

    Fr. 341 $100 1880 Silver Certificate PMG Choice Uncirculated 64.
    When we first offered this newly discovered note to the collecting public in September 2006, we used the following description..."A new note to the census and a truly great one. Of the two dozen Fr. 341's in the census, only the Bebee piece which is in the ANA museum is reported to be uncirculated. This note, which we had seen before it was third party graded, is not only uncirculated, but also boasts original embossing. With only three or four $100 Silvers of any variety reported as uncirculated, it is quite possible that this is the finest of the denomination. It certainly is the finest of the black-backs, as it is well above the quality of the ANA piece. The note is hugely margined all around, with pristine color, razor sharp print quality and all the eye appeal in the world. The appearance of this note on the market is one of the most exciting paper money discoveries of the decade. It will afford one collector the opportunity to own what no one else ever will: a wholly Uncirculated 1880 Black-Back Hundred." The description is still applicable. The note realized a touch over a quarter of a million dollars nearly seven years ago. The market for high end type notes has had its ups and downs over that time, but the rarity of this piece endures and we suspect its price realized will as well.
