Announcement: Tuesday Internet Currency Auctions move to Heritage Live!

Our Weekly Internet Currency Auctions are closing with a live, online auction on HA.com's Heritage Live! platform beginning with the auction that ends Tuesday, September 23rd. Each lot is offered one at a time, in lot number order, in a live auction beginning at 8:00 PM CT. During this part of the auction, live bidders will be on Heritage Live! competing with each other and with previously placed Internet bids. The lot opens, requests live bids, and then closes when the bidding is finished. There is no change in how you place your secret maximum bids during the week the auctions are open on HA.com. In addition, once bidding on HA.com ends, 2 hours before the live sessions start, you still have the option to leave proxy bids through Heritage Live!

For more information about Heritage Live!, please visit HA.com/live. If you have any questions about this exciting format change, please contact us at 800-872-6467 or Bid@HA.com.

Description:
Single Digit Technicolor in Gem
Fr. 1180 $20 1905 Gold Certificate PCGS Gem New 65PPQ.
An extraordinary note and the highlight of this sale. This Serial Number 6 Technicolor Twenty has not before been listed as known in any of the reference works. Our consignor has managed to trace it back to Frank Limpert, a collector from the 1930s and '40s who sold his collection at Stack's September 24, 1955 sale. This note was not in that sale. But we have every confidence in our consignor's research that this note did belong to Dr. Limpert. Until this piece surfaced, there had been only six single-digit 1905 Twenties reported: three for Fr. 1179, serial numbers 1, 3, and 5, and three for Fr. 1180, serial numbers 1, 7, and 8. We sold the raw Gem serial number 1 Fr. 1179 in 2005 for $241,500. We have also sold the serial number 3 Fr. 1179 around the same time; it was a raw XF and it realized $16,300. This strikingly beautiful serial number 6 note would be in the $50,000 plus range with an ordinary serial number. As a single digit PCGS 65 PPQ, we certainly anticipate a realization well over $100,000.
