    Finest Known Fr. 1194

    Fr. 1194 $50 1882 Gold Certificate CGA About Uncirculated 58. We sold this beautiful note once before as part of our landmark sale of the Dr. Lawrence Cookson Collection of Gold Certificates. It was described there, "Again, Dr. Cookson has obtained the finest known example of the Friedberg number, and in the case of this incredible 1194, no other note is even close. This strictly original beauty has perfect colors, large, even margins and incredibly deep, original embossing. It's a Superb Gem but for a single, extremely light fold far to the left. Absent this almost undetectable flaw, the note is Superb in every possible respect. The combination of quality and rarity of this note makes it an irreplaceable treasure that must be obtained in order to own the definitive Gold Certificate collection." In 1999, this piece realized $11,000. With the current emphasis on high-quality notes, this irreplaceable piece should well more than double that figure this evening.
