    One of Only Thirteen in Public Hands

    Fr. 160 $50 1880 Legal Tender PMG Very Fine 20.
    This piece, which has not appeared at auction since the late 1970's, is one of seventeen examples listed in the current Track & Price census. Four of those are permanently off the market, one in the Smithsonian and three in the vaults of the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco. Not one of the reported notes grade higher than Extremely Fine, with this piece right in the middle of the census. It is quite attractive for the grade, with its only flaw some edge repairs which are noted by PMG. We sold a repaired Fine 15 for $9,000 two years ago, and we would expect a somewhat higher realization for this considerably nicer example tonight.
