    Tied With One Other for Finest Known

    Fr. 119 $10 1901 Legal Tender PCGS Superb Gem New 67PPQ. This is an extraordinary Bison in every respect, a note worthy of every superlative that could be mentioned. It is one of only seven Bisons of all Friedberg numbers to receive this grade from PCGS, with not one example of this type graded higher, and one of only two Fr. 119's to reach the Superb Gem New 67 level. The margins are broad and even all around, the overprint a bright red, and the colors, paper quality and originality are as nice as they come. It is easily as nice as the PMG graded Superb Gem 67 EPQ example which realized over $40,000 in our September, 2008 sale. For the collector aspiring to Registry set greatness, or for those who simply wish to own the finest, this note is one you should put on tonight's short list of items that simply must be brought home.
    From the Joseph C. Thomas Collection
