    Lovely High-End Very Fine $20 Technicolor

    Fr. 1179 $20 1905 Gold Certificate PCGS Very Fine 30.
    This Technicolor $20 exemplifies the problems of third party currency grading. While our friends at PCGS may well be correct in their assessment of this notes technical grade, based solely on the number of light folds present here, the note is head and shoulders above what one typically finds in a Very Fine 30 holder. The colors on this note are so rich on both the face and back that comparison with similarly graded pieces is simply futile...whatever the grade enumerated on the holder, the notes are not even close to each other in appearance...and that, theoretically, is why we collect these items in the first place. Examination is the key here, and, if you think that this note will fetch only a "typical Very Fine 30" price...think again.
