    Extremely Rare 1882 Thousand Dollar Gold Fr. 1218f

    Fr. 1218f $1,000 1882 Gold Certificate PMG Very Fine 25.
    Series 1882 $1,000 Gold Certificates are listed as eight different significant numbers in Paper Money of the United States by Ira and Arthur Friedberg. Each one features different signature combinations as the offices of Register of the Treasury and Treasurer of the Untied States turned over. Judson W. Lyons and Ellis H. Roberts served together from April of 1898 to June of 1905, the period in which this note was printed and likely issued. Just 96,000 examples were printed in total, and the high face value, coupled with the Gold Reserve Act of 1934 under Roosevelt, resulted in massive redemption rates.
    Today, just eleven examples are listed in the census by serial number, including one piece which is off the market permanently in the holdings of the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco (as an aside, that note was personally examined by your cataloger when he inventoried the holdings of the FRBSF way back in 1993). The note we offer this evening first appeared in our September 1997 auction and was last handled in our 2013 Central States auction. It has the appearance of a higher grade piece, due in large part to its lack of soil and bright colors. It is also quite well margined and has retained nearly all of its vibrant ink color. PMG has commented about minor repairs, but having offered this note before, we know those repairs are nothing more than some very small closed edge splits and tears which truly affect little. Its May 2013 sale price was $176,250, and that realization is not likely to be too far off that mark this evening.
