    Superb Gem New PMG 68 Fr. 243

    Fr. 243 $2 1886 Silver Certificate PMG Superb Gem Unc 68 EPQ.
    Both grading services together have graded over 100 Fr. 243s, and out of those 100 pieces, three have been graded 68, this and one other at PMG and a single example at PCGS. When we sold this note in April 2008 we used the following description: "This magnificent Hancock is in one of the earlier PMG holders where the 'Exceptional Paper Quality' comment is only on the back--they happily reholder these should the new owner desire. We sold this note once before in January 2007 when it realized $19,550. PMG has graded 26 Fr. 243s with only this note at the 68 level. By comparison, they have graded 87 Fr. 242s, which is the other signature combination for this Large Seal Hancock. Of those 87 Fr. 242s thirty-nine graded 65 and above compared with only four Fr. 243s. A highly important note at this grade level." On that evening the note hammered for $28,000. Tonight it should end up three quarters of the way there.
