    Perhaps Finest Known DC-11-i $2 1887 Series A

    DC-11-i $2 1887
    This lovely note is one of the most significant items in the Halton Lake collection. This series, bearing the "A" designation, was issued for only one year before being discontinued in 1897. Examples in any grade are very scarce, with high grade pieces prohibitively rare. Even the Charlton catalogue fails to list any price in Uncirculated. Our consignor believes this to be the finest known DC-11-i, and we are loath to disagree. The colors are nothing short of spectacular, the centering is exceptional, and the eye appeal compelling. Expect some serious competition to determine who goes home with this rarity today. About Uncirculated.
