    Newly Discovered Mid-Grade Seward Treasury Fifty

    Fr. 376 $50 1891 Treasury Note PMG Very Fine 25.
    A new note to the census which, according to Track & Price, stood at 21 examples prior to the discovery of this piece. This example is in a PMG 25 holder with the comment "Ink," which we believe refers to an unobtrusive stain at the left end of the back that is totally commensurate with the grade and in our opinion not worthy of mention. The note is a solid VF with average paper color and far above average ink color for the grade. It is well margined and wholly free of edge tears or other problems. Almost all the recent sales of Sewards have been high grade pieces that sold well into six figures. This is the first VF that has been available since 2008 when we sold another PMG 25 at our FUN auction for $48,875. This note will likely do a bit better.
