    Ex: Jupiter Superb Gem 1880 Ace

    Fr. 31 $1 1880 Legal Tender PMG Superb Gem Unc 67 EPQ.
    When we last sold this note in September 2008 as part of our Jupiter Collection Auction, we used the following description: "Two years after this note's first auction appearance carrying the coveted PMG Superb Gem Uncirculated 67 EPQ grade, it remains the lone Fr. 31 graded Superb by either PMG or PCGS. That appearance saw a realization of $18,400 with the following description, 'Off the market since December 2000, when it crossed the auction block in a Lyn Knight sale, realizing just over $4,000. This extraordinarily nice example of a rather scarce number carries the coveted 'Exceptional Paper Quality' comment on the back of the PMG holder. This note in this grade could easily set a record for its number. We would expect this piece to enter into five-figures.' That five figure price was easily surpassed, and we expect even more interest when it is auctioned tonight." In the intervening five years, neither service has added another 67. PCGS's highest graded example is a 66 and PMG still has this lone 67 with nothing higher. Last time out, this piece realized $25,300; with no additional note appearing at this grade, it should certainly equal, if not surpass that figure.
