One of Only Fourteen Known
Fr. 156 $50 1880 Legal Tender PMG Very Fine 20.
Despite a restoration mentioned by PMG, this is one of the highest grade examples known of this just plain rare Friedberg number. Only a single note of this type is reported in higher than Very Fine, with that Extremely Fine piece off the market since it last appeared at auction back in 2006. Although listed as one of the fourteen examples known in the census, our records show not a single auction appearance for this particular note during the past fifty years.
