    Highest Grade Fr. 16c Ever Offered at Public Auction

    Fr. 16c $1 1862 Legal Tender PCGS Gem New 66PPQ.
    Between the two services, well over 500 examples of this common note have been graded. Out of that large group only four, two at each service, have reached the 66 level with only a single 67 above them, and, after ten years of third party grading, only this one Gem 66 note has ever been available to collectors at public sale. In spite of the fact that this is a rather common note, it will never be anything but rare at this grade level. Both services tend to be a little forgiving on these early issues, but that certainly does not seem to be the case with this note which appears to have earned every point assigned to it as well as its PPQ designation.
