    Finest Known Fr. 1186 Star Note

    Fr. 1186 $20 1906 Gold Certificate Star Note PMG Extremely Fine 40 EPQ. This discovery piece was one of the most talked about notes at the 2008 Central States Show, and its appearance will be well received by star note specialists. The Murray reference, The Complete Catalog of United States Large Size Star Notes, includes the census of known pieces, which until now stood at seven. A quick glance reveals this is the finest known example, and by a wide margin: more than 20 points. PMG was likely impressed as we do not remember another use of the word "incredible" on their holder. In addition to "Exceptional Paper Quality," the designation "Incredible Brilliant Color" is used, high praise indeed for a note grading Extremely Fine. Our estimate may well be conservative for this star note rarity.
