    Fr. 1215 $100 1922 Gold Certificate PMG Extremely Fine 40.
    This strikingly handsome note is the final large size gold certificate prior to the change over to small in 1928. The printing is razor sharp, particularly of the vignette of Benton. The Benton who appears on this note is Thomas Hart Benton, a Senator from Missouri and an extremely influential politician in his day. He was related to many other 19th century luminaries, including two Civil War Colonels, a Confederate Colonel from Mississippi and a Union Colonel from Iowa. He was the father-in-law of Presidential candidate John Frémont and the great-uncle of Congressman Maecenas Benton, who was the father of the famous artist identically named Thomas Hart Benton. Back to the note itself, it has the eye appeal of the world's nicest 40. Unfortunately, it has two small closed edge splits, which PMG has caught and accurately mentioned on the holder.
