    Gorgeous Colorado Territory Lazy Deuce

    Denver, CT - $2 Original Fr. 387 The Colorado NB Ch. # 1651
    From our sale of the Frederick Mayer collection of Colorado Territorial Notes in September of 2008, where we commented "This is one of only six $2 Territorials from this bank and one of fewer than three dozen Territorial Lazy Deuces from all banks in the country combined. It's bright and crisp, with fresh paper and exceptionally vivid colors, and bears the bold pen signatures of C[harles] B. Kountze as Cashier and Luther Kountze as President. This piece was one of Mr. Mayer's first Territorial purchases, having been obtained back in June of 1996." In that sale, this note realized $46,000. In the intervening seven years since we sold the Mayer holdings, the counts have remained exactly the same, and this lovely Territorial Lazy Deuce should realize no less tonight. PCGS Apparent About New 50, with some miniscule edge repairs which affect nothing.
