    PMG 66 EPQ 1905 Technicolor Gold Certificate From the Philpot Group

    Fr. 1180 $20 1905 Gold Certificate PMG Gem Uncirculated 66 EPQ.
    When we last sold this note in August 2015 we described it, "Once part of our January 2008 offering of the Peter Gamble Collection, this exquisite Gem was described in part, 'The note comes from a small hoard of high-grade Twenty Dollar 1905's that William Philpot 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___. This note is numbered A404319 and is from that run, but it has never had a previous auction appearance. It is an incredibly beautiful piece with flashy bright color, and original embossing that is easily seen through the third party holder.' The gavel fell at $80,500 at the Gamble auction. It's a realization that might not be possible this evening, but could be seen again as this is one of America's most beloved currency designs." At that sale the note realized $54,050. In today's more sophisticated market it may very well surpass that figure.
