    Finest Known Fr. 1209

    Fr. 1209 $100 1882 Gold Certificate Superb Gem New. Fr. 1209 is a rather scarce number in all grades, with about 45 examples known to exist. This, however, is the only uncirculated note. Its first appearance on the market was in our January 2001 sale, and at that sale, it realized $16,500. The note is hugely margined, perfectly bright on both sides and absolutely uncirculated. It even exhibits its full original embossing, something virtually unknown for this type. Anyone attempting to assemble the finest set of Gold Certificates simply must have this piece, as nothing comparable to it exists.
