    Fr. 1175a $20 1882 Triple-Signature Gold Certificate Rarity

    Fr. 1175a $20 1882 Gold Certificate PMG Very Fine 30.
    A rare, sharp-looking, and distinctive $20 1882 Gold Certificate. The initial 14,000 Fr. 1175 notes printed were hand-signed by Assistant Treasurer Thomas C. Acton in the space provided; only three are known today. Hand-signing was discontinued in subsequent printings as it was more efficient to engrave his signature to the plate. Thus his name was added to the engraved treasury signatures of Bruce and Gilfillan. Track & Price currently records 28 Fr. 1175a notes. This example is one of the finer circulated notes extant and exhibits lovely color on both sides. It is fully framed on three sides, but the top is rather close. The back has perfect centering. Ex: our April, 2013 CSNS sale, lot 18175. The eye-appeal of this note is superior to the Fr. 1175a we sold in April 2020 (PCGS Very Fine 35) for $14,400. A beautiful example of a difficult-to-find major type. These have traditionally brought five figures when encountered in this grade, and exceeding high estimate would not surprise us.
    From The Mike Coltrane Collection.

    Estimate: $10,000 - $15,000.
