    PCGS 50 PPQ 1880 $20 Silver - One of the Finest Known Examples of the Type

    Fr. 310 $20 1880 Silver Certificate PCGS About New 50PPQ. The most recent Track & Price census indicates a total of 41 examples known for this Friedberg number. Neither of the major grading services has yet to certify an uncirculated example, and they may never. The T & P census indicates the existence of a single unc, but it has yet to be seen by the services. This 50 PPQ is the highest graded 310 from PCGS; AU is also the highest grade that PMG has yet seen. This note is a beauty, with obvious fresh, original surfaces and much of the look of a perfect Gem. Through the holder, we can see nothing but a few minor corner-tip bends that seem to hold this beauty from far higher grade. Most importantly to Type Note collectors, neither PMG nor PCGS has graded any 1880 Twenty Dollar Silver in any of the uncirculated grades. This AU is simply one of the finest notes available, not just for this number, but for the five-number type. A highly important note.
