    Unique Fr. 1219b

    Fr. 1219b $1000 1907 Gold Certificate PMG Very Fine 25. In 2005, this note was sold as part of the Taylor Family Collection, which remains the largest single currency collection to ever be sold at auction. Our catalog description read, "This note was in the Jim Thompson collection for decades and had no prior known history. It sold as part of the Thompson collection in October 1990 and has resided in the Taylor collection since approximately that date. This is the only Napier-McClung $1000 Gold in existence--in or out of government hands. None of the Federal Reserve Bank collections nor the Smithsonian, have an example of this note. The colors are excellent as are the margins, and the surfaces are 100% natural. The note's only defect is a dozen or so pinholes, all of which appear to have all their paper present which would permit simple conservation." PMG has since graded this note VF 25 and added "Good Color, Great Margins" to the descriptors on the back. The holder also reads, "Pinholes", which in this case is a simple reminder that this note is completely original. Notes of this caliber often disappear from the marketplace into tightly held collections, and this note has the history to prove it as this is only its third ever auction appearance.
