    Superlative Colorado $50 Plain Back

    Pueblo, CO - $50 1902 Plain Back Fr. 678 The First NB Ch. # 1833
    We last sold this note in January of 2006, commenting at the time "A note of tremendous quality and importance, with this one of just three Series 1902 $50 Colorado Blue Seals grading uncirculated from all banks (save for the notes on one uncut sheet) in the state combined. It's certainly likely this is the finest of that very small group, as we could scarcely conceive of another example possessing the beauty of this specimen. Pen signed, with pure white paper and great colors, it is encapsulated in a PCGS Gem New 66 PPQ holder, a judgment which seems conservative considering the appearance of this specimen. Expect to see some serious bidding before the hammer falls on this lot tonight." It realized $9200 at that sale, and we see little reason why this simply spectacular piece should not reach or eclipse that figure tonight.
