    One of Only Fourteen Known

    Fr. 156 $50 1880 Legal Tender PCGS Very Fine 20.
    This is one of the nicest examples known of this just plain rare Friedberg number. Only a single specimen is reported in higher than Very Fine, with that Extremely Fine piece off the market since it last appeared at auction back in 2006. This note may be the nicest Very Fine 20 that we have seen in years, as it displays minimal wear, vivid colors, and incredible eye appeal for a note in that grade. This piece has long been in the census, but has been off the market since it last appeared in the 1977 ANA auction. Considering the rarity and attractiveness of this note, it would not surprise us at all to see our estimate handily surpassed early in the bidding.
