    Philpot Pedigreed $20 Technicolor

    Fr. 1180 $20 1905 Gold Certificate PCGS Choice About New 58.
    This stunning Technicolor comes from a small hoard of high-grade Twenty Dollar 1905's that William Philpot procured from a friend working in the Treasury Department. Originally, there were 25 notes in the grouping, all with serial numbers starting A4043__. The group is responsible for nearly all of the high grade survivors and the difference in quality is often minimal, perhaps an extra millimeter of margin on one side. This example boasts a Superb Gem appearance, with larger than average margins, stunning color, and cavernous embossing of the serial numbers. the more one views this note, the more perplexing the lack of a PPQ designation becomes. With sizeable differences in prices for Technicolor's, even in the same grade, expect this note to land high in the range, or even into the fully Uncirculated price range.
