    Superb 1905 Technicolor Gold Twenty

    Fr. 1180 $20 1905 Gold Certificate Superb Gem New. Jim O'Neal acquired this note from Lyn Knight's June 2001 Sale. It's a piece we are well familiar with having sold it in 1997 and again in 1999. 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 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 the equal of any note of this type that we've seen. Including this note, we've now handled ten pieces from that original group of 25. None have been superior to this letter-perfect example.
