    Condition Census Fr. 1175a Triple Signature $20 1882 Gold Note

    Fr. 1175a $20 1882 Gold Certificate PCGS Very Fine 35PPQ.
    Current census figures indicate a little more than two dozen examples of this triple signature note are known, and this attractively original note clearly ranks in the top five or six notes for condition. We were privileged to handle this condition-census rarity in our January 1999 auction where it was listed as About Extremely Fine with the following description: "This beautiful note from Dr. Cookson's spectacular collection is reaching the auction block for the first time. It's 100% original, with perfect surfaces, bright colors, and excellent margins." Our grade then and the PCGS grade today agree as we both clearly think this note is as nice as one will find for the grade. When the hammer drops, this condition census note will be a deal compared to the lone CU that sold for $199,750 in November of 2014.
