    $20 1905 Technicolor Gold PMG 67 EPQ - Top-Pop at Both Services Combined

    Fr. 1179 $20 1905 Gold Certificate PMG Superb Gem Unc 67 EPQ.
    Top-Pop at both services combined. The lone 7 at PMG and PCGS has not graded any of these higher than 65. We sold this note once before in April 2012 using the following description: "In 1999, Currency Auctions of America featured the 'A' plate position note from this sheet. An inspection of that note out of a third party graded holder revealed a 'Technicolor Twenty (that) is as spectacular an example of its type as any note we have ever seen. The colors, margins, and paper surfaces are all Superb.' This plate position 'C' note is an exact match from its sheet partner. In the holder, the original paper wave and bold embossing are far from muted, and the colors remain perfectly bright. Our records show this is the lone third party graded Superb Gem Fr. 1179 to ever be offered to the collecting community, with nothing close to it in regards to condition since our offering of Serial Number 74061 in that 1999 CAA sale. Any collector looking for the finest example of each Friedberg number should be prepared for intense competition." At that sale it was estimated at $120,000 up and realized $130,000. On today's market we would expect at least a touch more and possibly considerably more before the hammer falls on this treasure.
