    Brilliantly Colored 1905 $20 Gold from the Philpott Purchase

    Fr. 1180 $20 1905 Gold Certificate PCGS Gem New 65PPQ.
    This note comes from the small hoard of high-grade $20 1905's that William Philpott purchased from a friend who had worked at the Treasury Department. There were originally 25 notes in the group that were not consecutive, but all came from the pack that began A4043-. The margins on this note fully support the 65 grade, but are just not quite as broad as the 67s from the same run. Save for that trifle, this note is simply as nice as a Technicolor $20 can be. We handled this very piece in the same holder four years ago. At that time, it realized just over $45,500.
