    Amazing Fr. 1180 $20 Technicolor

    Fr. 1180 $20 1905 Gold Certificate PCGS Superb Gem New 67PPQ.
    "This note comes from a small hoard of high-grade Twenty Dollar 1905's that William Philpott purchased from a friend who had worked at the Treasury Department. There were originally 25 notes in that group that were not all consecutive, but all came from the pack that began A4043___. Market appearances of truly Superb Fr. 1180's are few and far between. When they are encountered, they are almost all from this same small group, a number of which have picked up light problems over the years. This example is superior to any note of this type that we have seen. Including this note, we have now handled over half from that original group of 25. At our FUN Auction in 2008, a PMG 66 EPQ realized over $80,000. Tonight, expect that mark to be easily eclipsed." That description was originally used when we sold this note as Lot 16037 from our September 2008 Long Beach Auction. At that sale, it realized $132,250. A different example at the same grade level sold in November 2011 for $97,750. In the current market, we would expect a realization just slightly short of the 2008 price.
