Description:
Fr. 284 $10 1878 Silver Certificate Extremely Fine. With the addition of this new piece from the Trask Collection, the census for Fr. 284's has risen to four. One is a damaged VG that has been off the market since 1986, and the other two are just about the same grade as this beauty, an XF that we sold in June 1994 for $19,800, and the Shiva example, called About Extremely Fine, which realized $27,500 in 1995. This note is problem-free, with super margins, bold colors and not a hint of a problem, repair or restoration of any kind. It has much of the visual impact of an uncirculated note, and, in a side-by-side comparison, this is very likely the finest known. The Hopper hand-autographed signature is in a bold, deep brown, and it contrasts beautifully with the red and blue overprints on this colorful and extremely rare note. This beauty is one of the Type Note highlights of this incredible collection formed from just after World War II until 1956. It has been over a decade since any Fr. 284 has been available at public auction, and the pent-up demand combined with the technical merits and tremendous visual impact of this extreme rarity could propel this note near or past the $50,000 mark.
From the collection of Malcolm A. Trask.
