    Stunning Technicolor $20 Gold

    Fr. 1180 $20 1905 Gold Certificate PCGS Banknote Superb Gem Unc 67 PPQ.
    A beautiful and original $20 Gold, this offering is not only one of the highest graded Fr. 1180 notes, but a look at the statistics for Fr. 1179 also tells us that it is one of the highest graded notes for the entire Technicolor design. This note originally comes from a small run with serial numbers beginning with A4043 that William Philpott purchased from a friend who had worked at the Treasury Department according to a Philpott letter that was included with a lot that crossed our auction block at the May, 1998 Central States auction. Our current superb plate letter D offering with serial A404344 is as nice as any that you will find of the two Technicolor Friedberg numbers. The margins are broad all the way around with the top and bottom margins being extraordinarily wide for any large size type note. Add perfect color of the pristine surfaces, strong embossing of both serial numbers, and centering of the face that is less than one millimeter away from perfection and you have one of the best notes that ever left the BEP during the large size era. Look for this stunning example to break the six figure barrier as we have done just that with our last three offerings of third party graded 67s of this Friedberg number.
