    Spectacular 1922 $500 Gold Certificate

    Fr. 1217 $500 1922 Gold Certificate Choice About New. Jim O'Neal acquired this lovely $500 Gold Certificate from Lyn's Memphis 2000 Sale where is realized $50,600. CAA had sold the note just six months earlier in our FUN 2000 Sale for $55,000. Our description at that time was as follows: "Comparable in every way, if not a hair better, than the Cookson example we sold last January for $26,400. This note is strictly original, with terrific paper surfaces, gorgeous margins, absolutely full color, and eye appeal that is second to none. It has two extremely light vertical bends, and without those nearly undetectible defects, this gorgeous $500 Gold would be a full Gem. There are five About New examples of this number known, and not a single uncirculated example. We would not be at all surprised, if, side-by-side the others, this piece turned out to be the finest known." It was estimated at that sale for $30,000 and very nearly doubled that figure. Lyn's Memphis description was virtually identical. We would expect this piece to just about equal, or somewhat exceed, it's realization at its last two auction appearances.
