Spectacular $100 Brown Back - The Finest We Have Ever Seen for Type

Chicago, IL - $100 1882 Brown Back Fr. 520 The Union NB Ch. # 3278
A fabulous note which is one of fewer than a literal handful of $100 Brown Backs from any location to receive a grade of 66PPQ or EPQ from either of the two major grading services. After a full decade of third party grading, PCGS has graded exactly one $100 Brown Back at the Gem New 66PPQ level and one a point higher, and PMG has graded only two examples at the 66 EPQ level, with none higher. We could go on ad infinitum about the myriad of superlatives that this note deserves, but one picture here is worth the thousand words that we might use. Suffice it to say that if you are looking for the ultimate National Bank Note $100 Brown Back, you simply will not find anything to best or even rival this spectacular piece of currency...which, by the way, comes from a truly rare Chicago bank that has seen only three offerings of any kind during the past twenty-five years. PCGS Gem New 66PPQ.
