    Extraordinarily Handsome, Brilliantly Colored, and Very Rare Large Brown Seal 1882 $50 Gold Certificate

    Fr. 1192 $50 1882 Gold Certificate PMG Choice Very Fine 35.
    Under very close scrutiny, the accuracy of the assigned Very Fine 35 grade becomes apparent, but in an exhibit case of Uncirculated notes, absolutely no one would say, "Wait a minute, this one's a VF." It is absolutely gorgeous with fresh bright colors, broad margins, and tremendous eye appeal. Bend it and turn it and a few light folds do appear, but the note to us has the value of an About Uncirculated piece. PMG has commented, "Closed Pinholes." Close scrutiny discloses two, but they are as non-distracting as can possibly be. 1192 is a truly rare number, with only 21 examples recorded by Track & Price in all grades combined. That is a figure that the Chambliss book agrees with. Another plate note example from the Chambliss reference, appearing on page 144.
