    Vibrant 1869 $2 Rainbow PCGS Gem New 65PPQ

    Fr. 42 $2 1869 Legal Tender PCGS Gem New 65PPQ.
    The $2 denomination is by far the scarcest of the four lowest-denomination notes from the 1869 Rainbow series. It's a note that is seldom encountered with the combination of brightness, margins, and vibrant color that this piece possesses. Displaying excellent centering and providing great eye appeal overall, this beauty is sure to provide its new owner with plenty of enjoyment for years to come. PCGS has only graded five notes at this level, attesting to the true difficulty in acquiring an example this nice and original.
