Lot 217
Fr-356. 1891, $2 Coin Note. Nice and crisp. The grade of this note derives mostly from the four, crisp vertical folds, as the paper is bright and the note seems very clean. As a type, the 1891 McPherson Deuces are much more common than the 1890's, but this is a relative term, as they are all scarce to rare. Extremely Fine.
Estimated Value $700 - 800.

Fr-373. 1890, $20 Coin Note. Finest known of only 8 pieces. This is the rarest of the three varieties that make up the 1890 series. Most known examples are in poor or heavily circulated conditions (a fact reflected in the Friedberg book, where this variety is priced at $4,000 in Very Good and with dashes in Very Fine and Extremely Fine)! This is a nice, clean note with no noticeable flaws or impairments. The paper is bright and the overall appearance is impressive for the type and grade. A wonderful opportunity for the serious collector to obtain a note that is not only rare, but finest known for the variety!

The portrait on this note is of John Marshall, former Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court also famous the definitive biography of George Washington (published in five volumes from 1804-1807). CGA graded Extremely Fine 40.
Estimated Value $20,000 - 22,500.

Lot 223
Fr-377. 1890, $100 Coin Note. One of the classic rarities in the American paper money series. The nickname "Watermelon Note" comes from the unusual, machine-turned engraving inside the 0's in the denomination on the back of the note -- they literally look like watermelons! This is a lovely note, pulled from circulation many years ago before any serious damage could occur. Thus, the paper is nice and crisp, the color is good, and the surfaces are nice and flat. Apart from some light soiling, this impressive note has no impairments. A wonderful note that is sure to incite spirited bidding. Very Fine to Extremely Fine.
Estimated Value $70,000 - 80,000.
