    $50 1922 Small Serial Numbers Mule Gold Certificate - The Finest Graded at PCGS

    Fr. 1200a Mule $50 1922 Gold Certificate PCGS Choice About New 58.
    This small serial number variety is an extreme rarity when compared to the large serial number type. Track & Price lists nearly 1,500 1200s and only 22 1200a's, a ratio of about 70 to 1. PCGS has neglected to mention that this is a 1200a but has correctly identified it as a Mule. It is actually a 1200am. In any event as a 1200a, 1200m, or 1200am it would still be the finest known, as there are no Uncirculated examples reported by PCGS for any of the three suffixed 1200s. This is the highest graded for whatever of the three varieties one chooses to assign it to. This cataloger was much happier when it was simply a 1922 Gold Certificate. I don't like ballpoint pens much either. However you slice it, this is a lovely and highly important note. Whatever has limited it to the 58 grade is not visible through the holder. Kidding aside this is a seriously rare variety, and the finest known at that. PCGS will correct the holder to Fr. 1200am at no cost.
