    1882 $500 Gold Certificate, Fr-1216a, Fine-VF. A bright and beautiful example of this highly popular high denomination Gold Certificate, with a different portrait of Lincoln than seen on other notes. This is one of only about two dozen notes known on this rare number. The colors are excellent and the paper clean and crisp, but just a bit too soft for a higher grade. This beauty was in the CAA auction in January 2000 and realized $9,350. With the market even strong today, and the demand for great notes showing no signs of slowing down, we feel that this one will surely surpass that figure. The underbidders who missed this note the last time it was offered, now have another opportunity to step up and bid. It is seldom that good notes such as this reappear so soon at auction, and the astute collector will take advantage of the situation.
