    Top-Pop at Both Services Combined and a Note That Fully Earned Its Lofty 67PPQ Grade

    Fr. 55 $2 1880 Legal Tender PCGS Superb Gem New 67PPQ.
    A common note but a real grade rarity. It is alone as Top-Pop at both services combined. Each service has graded two 66s with nothing higher at PMG and this lone 67 at PCGS. The note itself could serve as a model in a grading set as to what a 67PPQ should look like. The grade is right on the money with no reasonable argument available for 66 or 68. Beautifully margined, 100% fully bright, and with evident paper originality which is something that is rarely seen on this type in any grade. Obviously the first 67 to reach the market. Two of the four known 66s have auctioned, both with us. We sold one in June of 2010 for $5750. The other we sold two years earlier as part of the Tom Flynn Collection for the runaway price of $19,550. Even this lone 67 will likely fall far short of that number, but we would not be surprised if it entered five figures.
