    Excessively Rare $20.00 Gold Certificate Missing Third Printing

    Fr. 2402 $20 1928 Gold Certificate. Gem Crisp Uncirculated. This lovely note represents by far the finest example found in Warren Burnside's collection of missing third printing notes. It was purchased privately by Mr. Burnside in the 1970's and is being publicly offered here to the collecting fraternity for the first time. It is fully the equal of the example we sold in May of 1998 for $17,600, although, as the third piece to be offered, it will likely bring somewhat less. Notes such as this only become available when an older generation of collectors pass on, as all of the now four known pieces were sold to their original owners some twenty-five years ago. When this specimen is sold, it might be quite some time before another example of this great Gold Certificate error becomes available for this generation of collectors to enjoy.
