    Description

    Fr. 1180 $20 1905 Gold Certificate PMG Gem Uncirculated 66 EPQ. This Technicolor Twenty has glowing colors, huge margins and deep, original embossing. The note comes from a small hoard of high-grade Twenty Dollar 1905's that William Philpot purchased from a friend who had worked at the Treasury Department. There were originally 25 notes in the group that were not consecutive, but all came from the pack that began A4043___. Market appearances of true-Gem 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. We've handled well over half of that original group, and this one is nicer than most and as nice as any. The face colors are 100% bright, and the margins very broad. The back centering is a tad skewed, which is likely all that has prevented the 68 grade. The note certainly appears to have earned it from the face. Both sides of this beautiful note are plated on page 300 of American History as Seen Through Currency.
