    Fr. 1188 $50 1882 Gold Certificate PMG Very Good 10. Only eight examples of this number are known, all but one of which are right around this grade. The highest-grade note, an EF, sold for over $40,000 a few years ago. One of the eight known examples is permanently impounded, and opportunities to acquire any of the Fr. 1188's are few and far between. The note appears fully Fine from the face, with good color and decent margin size. The back is weaker, accounting for the assigned grade of VG. Silas Wright, who appears on the note, was a U.S. Senator from New York, and later Governor of New York. According to the Dauer book, which plates this note on page 338, "[Wright] was nominated as the Vice Presidential candidate in 1844, but turned it down so that he could run for Governor of New York. In that race, he defeated Millard Fillmore."
