    1863 $20 Legal Tender PCGS Gem New 65PPQ

    Fr. 126b $20 1863 Legal Tender PCGS Gem New 65PPQ. This gorgeous note falls right in the middle of a short run of lovely uncirculated notes. This piece displays perfect paper originality visible even through the PCGS holder, excellent margins all the way around, and color of the inks and paper that are the equal of the day the note was printed. It's easily as nice as any Fr. 126b that we have sold in the past, and easily merits the Gem New 65PPQ grade given by PCGS. Although a fair number of Fr. 126b's have been graded as uncirculated in the past, truly high grade examples are actually quite rare, with PCGS having graded only three pieces as Gem New 65 (with none higher) and PMG having graded only two pieces as Gem Uncirculated 65, with only one higher.
