    Second Finest Known 1913 $50 Gold Certificate

    Fr. 1199 $50 1913 Gold Certificate PMG Gem Uncirculated 66 EPQ.
    This note was previously in our 2008 auction of the Peter Gamble Collection where we used this description..."Track & Price indicates that this is the highest grade PMG or PCGS note of this Friedberg number to reach the auction block. Up until now, each of those two services has had a single 64 sold at auction--a PMG example in our September 2006 auction sold for $19,550, and a PCGS note in an October 2005 auction sold for $12,075. This note is far superior to either of those two pieces. It is broadly margined, brilliantly colored, and appears to have earned both its high numerical grade and its EPQ designation. Although the census for this number is rather high (approaching 200 pieces), the huge majority are heavily circulated. This gorgeous 66 EPQ note will certainly realize a runaway price--quite likely one in excess of $40,000". Our $40,000 estimate was pretty much right on the money, with the note realizing $43,125. Since that time, a single 67 has been graded and reached the auction block at the 2009 Memphis auction, realizing $63,250. Tonight's estimate repeats that of 2008.
