    Superb Gem 69 EPQ Fr. 1226 3¢

    Fr. 1226 3¢ Third Issue PMG Superb Gem Uncirculated 69 EPQ.
    Four oversized margins grace this well-preserved Fractional note that is at the apex of the grading heights for this number. Neither PMG nor PCGS has graded a Fr. 1226 equal or higher. More importantly, if you peruse both databases of the two major grading services, you will find that for all Fractional notes intended for circulation, both services have graded only one each equal to this 3¢ knockout, with none higher. We auctioned the PCGS 69PPQ example in September 2014. It was a First Issue Fr. 1242 that climbed to $3818.75. Therefore we believe the bidding tonight for this immaculate Fr. 1226 will really get heated at . . .
