    Flashy and Original Five Hundred Dollar Gold

    Fr. 1217 $500 1922 Gold Certificate Extremely Fine. Only about 50 examples are known of this one-number type. This is one we've sold before, back in September of 2000, when it realized $16,500. It's magnificently bright, with its full orange color on both sides. The note is absolutely problem free, with strictly original surfaces and not a hint of a defect. The blue serial numbers, bright red seal and vibrant gold overprint on the face along with the razor-sharp, lifelike Lincoln vignette give this note explosive eye appeal. We've seen only two examples in technically higher grade, although no uncirculated notes are known, but if you are looking for pure originality and fresh color, this is the one for you.
