Owner's Description

Prices for these large size notes have really firmed up and increased recently. I was able to pick this one up at a decent price at the Stack's/Bower's auction in Baltimore in March 2011.

It is a beautiful note with nice margins and is graded 64EPQ. The reverse has wide margins and a nice thread count.

This note, along with the 1886 design, were ranked Number 50 of the "100 Greatest American Currency Notes" as shown in the recent Bowers book by the same name.
