||Fr. 1247 10? Second Issue Block of Eight PCGS Choice About New 58PPQ. An incredible rarity that is the first multiple of this more challenging 10? variety to ever appear in one of our auctions. It is also the largest multiple we have ever seen or heard of representing this number. Fr. 1247 is a sleeper rarity, and this block of eight is well inked, with vivid bronze and bright paper. On the back, the important bronze "1" that makes this a 1247 is sharp and bold on each note. Only a light fold is observed down the center between the notes, but no faults are noted. A great Fractional item destined for the finest of collections. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society, Heritage Auctions Internet Sale (5/2017).
