    Very Rare - One of Just Eighteen Known Fr. 49

    Fr. 49 $2 1878 Legal Tender PCGS Very Fine 30.
    A very rare deuce that our consignor won at the 1983 ANA auction. It is just one of 18 Fr. 49 serial numbers in the Track & Price census. It is also one of the highest graded examples whether you are looking at the T&P or the two major grading services databases. This is an attractive mid-grade $2 even with the small edge splits and tears cited on the third party label. We would like to emphasis that "small" is the key word. It is also plated on page 53 of the Chambliss-Hessler reference. April 2017 was the last time that we auctioned this Friedberg number. That offering was a PCGS VF 25 with a minor repair in the upper left corner and it realized $14,100. The current note with its nice mid-grade appearance and little higher third party grade, should bring more.
