    A Drop-Dead Beautiful Fr. 127 Rainbow $20

    Fr. 127 $20 1869 Legal Tender PMG Gem Uncirculated 65 EPQ.
    This piece was last sold when our consignor obtained it in January of 2011 when we sold it as part of the Menlo Park Collection. We described it there as "A drop-dead beautiful note which combines huge margins with spectacular color and fresh original paper surfaces. Although not really a rare number, perfectly centered and brightly colored examples such as this are truly hard to obtain, which is why Track & Price reports only one Gem Fr. 127 has been sold during the past two years." Nine years later, more than two years have passed since the appearance of the last Fr. 127 in Gem Uncirculated 65 EPQ or PPQ, with the last example to cross the auction block realizing $52,875 when we sold it in our August, 2017 ANA sale.
