    Tied for Finest Known

    Fr. 147 $20 1880 Legal Tender PMG Gem Uncirculated 65 EPQ.
    A scarce and very underrated number in this grade, with Track & Price listing more than 730 examples in its census, but only 12 in Gem Uncirculated. PMG has graded 194 Fr. 147s, but the highest grade awarded to any is Gem New 65 EPQ, a standard that is shared by only four notes. This is one of that quartet, and it is a lovely note indeed, with vivid colors, bright paper, and even margins all around. We have only sold one other Gem Fr. 147 since 2007, with that piece realizing $5175 last year. In a far stronger market for truly nice currency, expect that figure to be easily surpassed this evening.
