    Strictly Original High Grade Triple Signature Gold Certificate

    Fr. 1175a $20 1882 Gold Certificate Extremely Fine. As with so many of the Trask notes, this number was previously unreported. The total census for Fr. 1175a's, with this note included, is around 30 pieces, almost all of which are heavily circulated. This example is in the top half-dozen for grade, and likely higher than that when eye appeal and originality are considered. The note has all its full color, including a bright orange back, without a trace of fading or color-change as is so often seen on these Gold Certificates. The surfaces are strictly original, and the note is totally free of repairs, restorations or improvements of any kind. CAA has sold only ten 1175a's; only one other grading as high as Extra Fine. We sold that piece in January 1998 for $18,700. This beauty should easily exceed that amount.
    From the collection of Malcolm A. Trask.
