    Bright, Flashy and Broadly Margined 1922 $500 Gold Certificate

    Fr. 1217 $500 1922 Gold Certificate PMG Choice Very Fine 35 EPQ.
    At this grade level, we do not believe it would be possible for another note to surpass the eye appeal of this ultimately alluring high-denomination early 20th century $500 gold. The colors, margins, and flash belie the accurately assigned 35 EPQ grade. From the back, the note does seem to be a 35, with the exception of the color which is that of an uncirculated piece. From the face, the note looks like a gorgeous 58. If this note hammers for the usual 35 EPQ price, it would prove to be an exceptional bargain. A search of Track & Price indicates this is this note's first trip to the auction block ever. The very next serial number has sold variously in XF and AU grades, clearly the two were put away together in bygone years.
