    Description

    Fr. 1199 $50 1913 Gold Certificate PMG Choice Uncirculated 64 EPQ. This 1913 Fifty Dollar Gold has received the coveted "Exceptional Paper Quality," designation from PMG. The note is photographed, both sides, on page 342 of the Dauers' massive 2003 work American History as Seen Through Currency. This 1913 Series was the first Fifty Dollar Bill to carry the portrait of U.S. Grant, a portrait that, with only minor changes, is still in use on today's fifty-dollar bill. Although over 130 examples of this Friedberg number are known, fewer than 10% of them are listed as fully uncirculated pieces. This note is new to the census, and it falls right between two other uncirculated examples, one of which we sold in May of 1999 for over $8000. This note, with its brilliant colors, obvious paper originality and the PMG 64 EPQ grade, should far eclipse that number.
