    Excessively Rare $20 Gold Certificate Missing Third Printing

    Fr. 2402 $20 1928 Gold Certificate. Choice Crisp Uncirculated. This is the first opportunity in several years we have had to sell any example of the King of Gold Certificate Errors. We now know of four such pieces, all of which, interestingly, were discovered in the Chicago area 30 years ago. This is the kind of major error that defines a collection, and one which has been offered less than a handful of times over the past three decades. Even the monumental Taylor Family collection, perhaps the best ever assemblage of Error Notes, lacked a 1928 Gold Certificate missing its third printing. If rarity and desirability are any guide here, expect a five figure realization for this note from the New England Changeover collection.
