High denomination 1882 blue seals like this are not frequently encountered, regardless of the number of notes printed. There is a big difference between the two types of 1882 $50 blue seals. The variety that says “1882-1908” on the back is rare, but no where near as rare at the type that says “Fifty Dollars.” The second variety is extremely rare and only about a half dozen are known to exist. The first type should still be worth at least $4,000. The second type is a five figure rarity though.
