    Elusive Near Superb 1886 $2 Silver Certificate

    Fr. 242 $2 1886 Silver Certificate PMG Gem Uncirculated 66 EPQ.
    Fr. 242 is a note that comes quite nice due to two runs of Uncirculated pieces that have made their way into the 21st century in basically as-issued condition. PMG's recently released population report is indicative of the quantity of nice pieces that have survived. A total of 37 notes has been graded either 66 or 67 by PMG for Fr. 242 with only a single 68 above them. While we are sure that number will increase over the years, we expect that the proportions will hold fairly true, and 66 EPQ will remain an elusive grade.
