Picked this up raw this week. This is one of the toughest large notes to find in Gem because of the tiny front margins, which leave almost no room for error. Nice paper and embossing, should be solid 64 with a decent shot at 65.

There actually is a full top obverse margin there which doesn't show well because the note is tilted back.

From the photo the reverse looks very nice also; clean all around near as I can observe. Good luck.

Thanks. The reverse is wide left but hopefully still in bounds.

Of note, the complicated reverse was an early anti-counterfeiting device.

Beautiful note Mr.Frog.

I love the center vignette of the United States Capitol and everyday life depicted in the late 19th century....one of my favorite engravings that the BEP used for many years. My example is identical except for a larger treasury seal.

I'm with Steve - great vignette. Can you imagine being able to walk by (or even right up to) the United States Capitol building like that?

Steve, what's the hourglass-looking symbol at the end of the serial on your $2?

I'm not a U.S. Obsolete collector as such, but when a note such as this is auctioned I always take a look and put in a usually low bid. Surprise for me but I'll take it.

Stever - Near-identical design perhaps, but yours is much earlier and a heck of a lot more interesting!

Thanks, gents. As you can see, I am but dipping my toe in the waters of graded notes and sticking to what I'm comfortable with. I'll have one more to post when it arrives in a couple days.

I will probably need your assistance on notes once I fill out my base SC set.
