    Lovely High Grade 1882 $500 Gold.

    Fr. 1216b $500 1882 Gold Certificate About Extremely Fine. The total census for this number is about 30 pieces. No uncirculated note is known, and to our knowledge, there is only one About New. This note grades in the top ten for technical merit, and far above that for eye appeal. It has the look of an About New note from the face. The back has retained all its bright orange color, but it does show a number of light folds. This is an important high-end example of this popular high-denomination Gold Certificate.
