    Gorgeous 1882 Twenty Dollar Gold PCGS 66PPQ

    Fr. 1178 $20 1882 Gold Certificate PCGS Gem New 66PPQ. From our April 2008 sale of the Tom Flynn Collection, where we described the note "PCGS has graded only a single Fr. 1178 above the 66PPQ level of this note. This piece is outstanding in every respect, with incredibly flashy color, deep, original embossing, huge, even face margins and perfect printing quality. The note also has the highly important "Premium Paper Quality," designation. The Gold Certificate series in Tom's collection is less complete than the other Large Size areas. But he does have some extremely nice ones. This beauty is one of the nicest." At that sale, the note realized $25,300. The market is off a bit since then, but with quality like this, this piece could well surprise.
    From the Joseph C. Thomas Collection
