拍品描述 1862年2美元纸钞 PMG Gem Unc 66 EPQ

Fr. 41. 1862 $2 Legal Tender Note. No. 63218. Plate B. PMG Gem Uncirculated 66 EPQ.,This is an exceptional note in every respect, very much deserving of the lofty grade assigned by PMG. The paper is uniform and bright, with obviously unimpaired crispness. The ink tones are very vivid. The green overprints are deep green, the red ink of the Treasury Seal is likewise deep. The serial numbers were applied in a different printing, and the one at the lower left is heavily inked. Both sides are beautifully centered. On the face the margins are narrow but even, and in no place does the edge compromise even the outer guideline border of the design. The back is similarly attractive, with bold color, near-perfect centering and broad margins. Considering the fragile nature of the paper, the considerable financial hardships of the era in which this was issued, and the long span of time since its release by the Treasury, it is remarkable that this or any of these notes survived in anything close to Uncirculated grade, let alone as Gems.

As with the Series of 1862 $1 Legal Tenders, there are multiple subvarieties of this note described by Friedberg and in detail by Q. David Bowers in <em>The Encyclopedia of United States Paper Money</em>, these being distinguished by series number ranges printed on the face, engraving firm imprints and the presence or lack of a small green face plate number left of the central portrait. This note is Series 166, with the face plate number and the imprint of National Bank Note Company at the lower border. There are more grading records for Fr. 41 than any of the other variants (423 notes), but this is partly due to those other variants not having been accounted for in the earliest pieces reviewed by the grading services. As such, the relative populations are skewed a bit to make this appear the most common type, which in reality it may not be.

Either way, this note is not only one of the finest examples of this Friedberg variety, but also one of the very finest 1862 $2 Legal Tenders, period. The number of notes tied at this grade across both services may be counted on one hand, with the additional possibility that the same note(s) could appear in the records for both services. No pieces have been graded finer than this at either PMG or PCGS. This is another world-class condition rarity and a simply beautiful example. We are delighted to be able to offer it once again, nearly 30 years after it appeared in our 1989 Fixed Price List.

The portrait on this note is that of Alexander Hamilton, an accomplished statesman who famously met his death in a duel with the rascally Aaron Burr. Hamilton was a trusted aide to General Washington during the American Revolution, and later became the first U.S. secretary of the Treasury, in which capacity he directed much of the Washington administrations fiscal policy. He is credited as the founder of the Bank of New York, the <em>New York Post</em>, the U.S. Coast Guard, and was also the chief architect of the First Bank of the United States (mostly privately owned, but with federal participation, and founded by an act of Congress). His duel with Burr was the result of Burrs challenge, after Hamilton had worked to cause Burrs defeat in the presidential election of 1801 (in favor of Thomas Jefferson), and later, another defeat in Burrs run for the governorship of New York in 1804. <p>,From the A.J.
