    Fr. 1175a $20 1882 Gold Certificate PMG Choice Uncirculated 64 EPQ. This beautiful triple-signature Gold Certificate bears the printed countersignature of Thomas C. Acton, the Assistant Treasurer. This note, which serves as the Hessler illustration, was last on the market in January of 1990 as part of the Jim Thompson Collection. At that time, it realized $20,900, a very considerable sum way back in the Twentieth Century. Just about two-dozen examples are known, with only this note and one other listed as uncirculated; the other unc made its only market appearance in a 1974 auction, and has not been seen since. This piece, which resides in a PMG 64 EPQ holder, is very likely the finest known example, and certainly no worse than second. The note is photographed on page 296 of the Dauer book. It's an unusually attractive Gold Certificate, with bright colors, good margins and razor-sharp print quality. Triple Signature Gold Certificates are always very much in demand in any grade, and this near-Gem example is destined to set a record for its type and denomination.
