    New to the Market Fr. 1217-One of the Finest Known

    Fr. 1217 $500 1922 Gold Certificate PMG Choice Very Fine 35 EPQ. A simply spectacular example of this rare type. It is new to the census, which still numbers under fifty pieces in all grades, and easily ranks as one of the top ten highest grade specimens known. PMG has graded this piece as Choice Very Fine 35 EPQ, with the back of the holder noting "Exceptional Paper Quality, Great Color, Vivid Detail." We sold a PMG About Uncirculated 58 Fr. 1217 a year ago for $103,500, and, while this piece clearly is lower grade, the appearance through the holder of the two notes is not all that different. We can go on forever about the positive attributes of this lovely type note, but one glance at the accompanying photographs here says it all. If this gorgeous note doesn't get your pulse racing, you should probably be collecting something else.
