    Description

    Fr. 1216b $500 1882 Gold Certificate Fine-Very Fine. This handsome Five Hundred has great paper originality, super colors and no problems whatever. The colors on both sides are vivid, particularly the back color, which quite often comes faded on these high-denomination Gold Certificates. Only about forty examples of this number are known, with not a single uncirculated piece listed in the census. The great majority of the notes grade Very Good or Fine, with fewer than ten examples as nice as this piece for technical grade, and likely even fewer with an appearance this nice. The note's eye-appeal is superior to the example which we sold in our November Charity Auction for $13,500. We would not be at all surprised to see this piece reach or exceed . . .
