1862 $1 Fr# 16 - AU
US Currency-Legal Tender Notes, Large
1862 $1 Fr# 16 - AU
The red seal appears unexpectedly faded for an1862 legal tender that otherwise features pretty ink, and relatively crisp paper. Very fair margins for the type.

1862 $1 Fr# 16v - PMG AU-55/minor rust
US Currency-Legal Tender Notes, Large
1862 $1 Fr# 16v - PMG AU-55/minor rust
Margins are unusually even for a note frequently seen with extremely tight edges, and this clearly faces up as a choice example. The broad design with relatively large motifs typically left little...

1862 $2 Fr# 41 - PMG VF-30
US Currency-Legal Tender Notes, Large
1862 $2 Fr# 41 - PMG VF-30
The frame line is solid all the way around this scarce 1862 legal tender, and the colors face up even better than expected of VF30. A tiny incursion may be noted on the upper far left edge.
$700 $800 $1,050.00

1869 $2 Fr# 42 - PMG VF-30
US Currency-Legal Tender Notes, Large
1869 $2 Fr# 42 - PMG VF-30
The 1869 $2 denomination represents the scarcest of the four lowest denomination notes out of the Rainbow series. In too low of a grade, the colors can be too muted to truly appreciate the artistry,...

1869 $10 Fr# 96 - PMG VF-20
US Currency-Legal Tender Notes, Large
1869 $10 Fr# 96 - PMG VF-20
The left margin of the front face barely makes it onto the paper while the back face tilts a bit toward the right. Four pinholes scatter over the left portrait and require mention. The key to faking...

1878 $5 Woodchopper Fr# 69 - PMG AU-58
US Currency-Legal Tender Notes, Large
1878 $5 Woodchopper Fr# 69 - PMG AU-58
One delicate fold of the top right corner barely encroaches upon the design, and may help explain why this isn't at least a Choice CU example. For all intents and purposes, a beautiful UNCish example...

1875 $5 Woodchopper Fr# 65 - ChCU
US Currency-Legal Tender Notes, Large
1875 $5 Woodchopper Fr# 65 - ChCU
Beautifully centered top-to-bottom, the right margin is a little slender to prevent consideration much above the Ch CU grade. This is a fairly difficult note that comes with bright color and...

1878 $5 Woodchopper Fr# 69 - PMG ChCU-63 EPQ
US Currency-Legal Tender Notes, Large
1878 $5 Woodchopper Fr# 69 - PMG ChCU-63 EPQ
While grading a point lower than other examples in today's sale, if anything, this CU63 woodchopper possesses noticeably better ink and an outstanding overprint for the type. The note was cut...

1878 $5 Woodchopper Fr# 69 - PMG ChCU-64 EPQ
US Currency-Legal Tender Notes, Large
1878 $5 Woodchopper Fr# 69 - PMG ChCU-64 EPQ
The margins certainly do not seem to be what might have held back an even higher grade, as both sides are surrounded by plentiful white space. Perhaps slightly rounded corners were noted by PMG, but...

1878 $5 Woodchopper Fr# 69 - PMG ChCU-64 EPQ
US Currency-Legal Tender Notes, Large
1878 $5 Woodchopper Fr# 69 - PMG ChCU-64 EPQ
The top right corner may be slightly crinkled, but this is noted only as one enjoys exploring the broad, even margins. The back of the note appears particularly well centered for the type.

1880 $1 Fr# 34 - PCGS ChCU-64 PPQ
US Currency-Legal Tender Notes, Large
1880 $1 Fr# 34 - PCGS ChCU-64 PPQ
The small red seal seems a trifle pale compared to the vivid ink that dominates the rest of this gorgeous note. Margins are almost perfectly even around the front, and favor the top as viewed from...

1880 $10 Fr# 108 - AU
US Currency-Legal Tender Notes, Large
1880 $10 Fr# 108 - AU
Fr# 109 is the other option for the large brown seal, blue serial jackass type, but is so rare that this Fr# 108 is the only realistic objective for most collectors. And at our AU grade, the final...

1880 $10 Fr# 106 - PMG AU-55
US Currency-Legal Tender Notes, Large
1880 $10 Fr# 106 - PMG AU-55
Trifling wear affects the four corners and as viewed from the front, the bottom left corner shows a small crease. An affordable example of the 1882 legal tender, scarce with a bold, large pink seal...

1901 $10 Bison Fr# 121m, John Burke back plate #309 - PMG VF-30 EPQ
US Currency-Legal Tender Notes, Large
1901 $10 Bison Fr# 121m, John Burke back plate #309 - PMG VF-30 EPQ
Back plate #309 noted on the holder. Excellent for the "choice" level, the paper beams with pleasing, original creme color which helps emphasize attractive ink. Seals remain bright and sharp.

1901 $10 Bison Fr# 121m John Burke back plate #334 - XF-35 EPQ
US Currency-Legal Tender Notes, Large
1901 $10 Bison Fr# 121m John Burke back plate #334 - XF-35 EPQ
Back plate #334 noted on the holder. Strong quality, driven by the exceptional paper acknowledged by PMG, truly makes this gorgeous 1901 mule appear fully AU/CU at first glance. The paper faces up...

1917 $1 Star Fr# 39* - PMG XF-45 EPQ
US Currency-Legal Tender Notes, Large
1917 $1 Star Fr# 39* - PMG XF-45 EPQ
Embossing still seems plenty bold given the grade, and the eye-appeal seems a bit nicer than XF45, perhaps explaining why PMG mentions EPQ. A scarcer 1917 $1 "star" note with a whole lot going for it...
$320 $370 $400.00
19
1917 $2 Star Fr# 60* - PMG XF-45
US Currency-Legal Tender Notes, Large
1917 $2 Star Fr# 60* - PMG XF-45
This scarce 1917 deuce faces up a bit more nicely than the XF45 grade might imply. Decent centering on either side helps matters, as does a lack of any discernible problems. And it's in high-def!
$350 $450 $390.00
20
1923 $1 Star Fr# 40* - PMG XF-40
US Currency-Legal Tender Notes, Large
1923 $1 Star Fr# 40* - PMG XF-40
Superior CU examples of the Fr# 40 "Star" note typically come from cut sheets, but this is a lightly and honestly handled, yet still very well preserved example that had to survive the ravages of...

1923 $1 Fr# 40 - PMG ChCU-64 EPQ
US Currency-Legal Tender Notes, Large
1923 $1 Fr# 40 - PMG ChCU-64 EPQ
Bright crimson-red ink and vivid colors overall create a terrific presentation for a note that seems a smidge nicer than CU-64. Even the margins are rather well distributed. PMG notes the obviously...

$10 April 1, 1879 Fr# 214 - PMG VF-15/rust
US Currency-Refunding Certificates, Large
$10 April 1, 1879 Fr# 214 - PMG VF-15/rust
These are always intriguing notes and were intended to offer middle-class citizens a means by which they could own government securities. The interest rate of 4% had no specified redemption date; thus...

1886 $2 Fr# 243 - PMG AU-55/annotation/minor repair
US Currency-Silver Certificates, Large
1886 $2 Fr# 243 - PMG AU-55/annotation/minor repair
The PMG holder stats "annotation, minor repair", which appears to reference a small, expertly closed tear beneath "Was" as viewed from the front. The note is very attractively centered from either...

US Currency-Silver Certificates, Large
1891 $10 Tombstone Fr# 299 - PMG VF-25 EPQ

US Currency-Silver Certificates, Large
1891 $10 Tombstone Fr# 299 - PMG ChCU-63
The left-right margins appear just perfect, while vertical centering slightly favors the top edge. Grades for the popular "tombstone" type curiously avoid the ChCU level, as they are usually at best,...
