1891年50美元 PMG XF 40 $50 Treasury Note
Fr. 376. 1891 $50 Treasury Note. PMG Extremely Fine 40 EPQ.Just 22 examples are known of this rare one year type that is represented by just a single Friedberg number. These Series of 1891 $50 Treasury Notes feature the profile portrait of William Henry Seward prominently at center. A large 50 counter is found in the ornate left end panel while a red scalloped Treasury Seal is seen at right. The engraved signatures of Treasury officials Rosecrans and Nebeker are displayed at the lower left and right of center. The green printed back design is largely open with the clause found at center and denominational counters in the corners.Six of the known surviving example of this type are permanently held in government collections while another resides in the ANA collection. Just 15 notes are available to the collecting public which is certainly not enough to meet collector demand. The print run for this design was 80,000 examples of which only 23,500 were distributed. Treasury records reported only $1,250 worth (25 notes) are outstanding.This example is exceptionally well printed in dark inks. The paper is well margined and wholesome, easily earning PMGs coveted EPQ designation. No serious United States type collection can be considered complete without a $50 Treasury Note and few opportunities arise each year to obtain one. Here is your chance.From the Karelian Collection.
