    $50 St. Louis Red Seal

    Saint Louis, MO - $50 1902 Red Seal Fr. 664 The Fourth NB Ch. # (M)283
    $50 Red Seals are perhaps the single most underrated type in Nationals, with the new Kelly census showing just 94 examples recorded from all banks in the country combined. This piece, which is new to Don's census, is the third known from this better St. Louis bank. Ensconced in an institutional collection for decades, it is now being offered to the numismatic community for the first time. PCGS has labeled this piece as Very Good 10, which is utterly accurate, and then elected to place it in an "Apparent" holder due to a few "small stains." The small stains are just that...small, and utterly inconsequential. Indeed, they are exactly what collectors would expect to find on a note graded as Very Good. The overall appearance here is actually nice for the grade, with the red overprint quite bold and the signatures quite strong.
