This is probably the most iconic and collected US currency note of all time. Easy to see why, the beautiful design embodies the frontier and pivotal US history. This is also the very rare Fr 116 with Vernon-Treat signatures.
You just don't see these early signature Bison notes come up very often. These early ones are also a fascinating mini variety in that if you look close at the seal and serial numbers, they printed them in two different shades. The seal is cherry red while the serial numbers are orange-red. They discontinued doing this during the following Vernon-McClung signature so these scarce early print Bison notes have their own unique look and character.
The note grades Choice Fine to Very Fine in my opinion. Still has clean margins and sharp corners. Still boasts great color on the design and overprint.Has several pinholes typical of the era, and one small internal hole in the center of the note. Still faces up nicely, the blemishes really only show up when held to light. Please check scans and judge grade for yourself. Thanks for looking and have a great day!
