    $1000 1882 Gold Fr. 1218f--The Second Finest Known

    Fr. 1218f $1000 1882 Gold Certificate PMG Very Fine 25. Only eight examples of this number are known--one of which is permanently impounded in the Federal Reserve system. We sold the highest grade piece, a PMG 30, in our Long Beach sale last September for $195,500. This piece is just a shade lower in grade. PMG has noted "Pinholes, Small Repaired Internal Tear, Paper Thin" on their holder, but all are minor problems and the note faces up like a strong VF. The colors in particular are amazingly strong for the grade, and the back has great detail along with vivid, bright orange color. There are nowhere near enough 1882 Gold Thousands to supply collector demand, and the prices, each time one appears, are considerably in advance of prior appearances. This note, which we believe to be the second finest known example, could well reach the six-figure threshold.
