    Stunning, Widely Margined Rainbow $50

    Fr. 151 $50 1869 Legal Tender PCGS Very Fine 35.
    There are few Series where collectors seek notes from every denomination for their beautiful design elements. Two such Series are the 1896 Educational Notes, and the 1869 "Rainbow" notes. Their highly prized status led to a lot of improvements to eye appeal and value. This note is free of improvements and boasts great color. Moreover, the margins are quite large, likely helped by its top position on the sheet. The only finer example to be offered at auction was about a year and a half ago when we sold a PMG About Uncirculated 55 for $223,250. In terms of eye appeal, this piece is a stone's throw from that example and will not disappoint.
