    Fr. 1189a $50 1882 Triple Signature Gold Certificate PMG Fine 15. Only eleven examples of this Friedberg number are known. There are two uncirculated pieces, one of which we sold in 1998 for over $80,000, and a second, the Bebee piece, which is in the ANA museum. This Dauer note, which is plated on page 338 of his book, serves as the Hessler illustration, and it was part of the Jim Thompson Collection. It sold at auction in 1990 for over $11,000. All Triple Signature notes are rare, with Fifty Dollar Gold Certificates being prohibitively so. The note bears the PMG comments, "Restoration & Margins Trimmed." The margins remain decent size, and the note has excellent color, and much of the appearance of a Very Fine piece. Anyone attempting to assemble a meaningful collection of Gold Certificates should consider the purchase of this note. It may be quite some time before any other Fr. 1189a makes its way to the market.
