    Spectacular 100 Percent Fully Colored, Broadly Margined $500 1922 Gold Certificate

    Fr. 1217 $500 1922 Gold Certificate PCGS About New 53.
    Pictured as the plate note on page 148 of the 2014 Chambliss-Hessler encyclopedia, this $500 1922 Gold Certificate has every bit of its bright, original color and the look of a wholly Uncirculated example. The margins are broad all of the way around and even the closest inspection reveals no problem, save for a light center fold. The 53 grade indicates that there is probably also a still lighter second fold that cannot be seen through the holder, but the impression one gets when gazing at this note is that of a perfect Gem. The Chambliss and Track & Price records are a few numbers apart, with Chambliss reporting 63 known and Track & Price 59. In February 2012, we sold a slightly lower graded AU 50 example for $92,000. We would certainly expect this higher graded and far prettier example to well exceed that number.
