Honest Abe 50c Note - NEWP

This is an exciting newp for me. I’ve wanted an example for years and this one was priced right. I couldn’t pass this up! :)

    Abe looks so young for such an old note. Great pick-up!

    Abe's hair is particularly well portrayed. Nice note. Peace Roy

    I took this picture last night showing the watermark:

    Very cool looking to me. I should have done this initially.

    No skimping on ink on that fractional note. Nice. Peace Roy

    They're on ebay, that's where I found mine. Searching by the Friedberg number should bring them up:
    1374 and PMG or PCGS would bring up slabbed examples I recommend graded I'm decent with grading coins, but I don't yet trust myself on grading paper.
