    Gold Certificate Type Set of Artist's Proofs

    United States Treasury Artist's Rendition of Gold Certificate Denominations Ca. 1908-1909
    Another wonderful piece of history right from the Treasury Department at the turn of the century. Like the two previous lots, this grouping, which includes an United States Treasury envelope is from the administration of Assistant Treasurer Louis A. Coolidge. A penned inscription on the envelope reads:

    Descriptions of
    Issues of
    Gold Certificates
    $10, $20, $50, $100, $500, $1,000, $5,000, $10,000

    The inscription is a description of the following notes in circulation at the time. Since the $5,000 and $10,000 are essentially unavailable to collectors, the pieces represented here may be the closest they will come to owning a "Treasury" produced example of the notes.

    Fr. 1167-1170 $10 1907 Gold Certificate
    Fr. 1181-1186 $20 1906 Gold Certificate
    Fr. 1192a-1197 $50 1882 Gold Certificate
    Fr. 1206-1214 $100 1882 Gold Certificate
    Fr. 1216-1216b $500 1882 Gold Certificate
    Fr. 1219-1219e $1,000 1907 Gold Certificate
    Fr. 1221d-j $5000 1882 Gold Certificate
    Fr. 1223d-g $10000 1882 Gold Certificate

    PMG did not assign numeric grades to any of the artist's renditions in this lot. They are hand drawn on heavy paper and as such, there will be no returns for any reason. There are few chances to own United States Treasury ephemera with the pedigree and curiosity as the three sets offered here tonight. With no previous offerings of anything remotely resembling these notes, we will be offering them without an estimate. (Total: 9 items)
