    Near-Superb Rainbow $10

    Fr. 96 $10 1869 Legal Tender PMG Gem Uncirculated 66 EPQ.
    In January of 2008, this stunning $10 was offered as part of the Peter Gamble Collection. Its above average eye appeal, even for the grade of 66, resulted in fierce bidding competition. The physical attributes were captured in our FUN catalog and read, "It is a real beauty with exceptionally bright colors and broad, even margins on both sides. The back design on this particular type is larger than the face--and the top-to-bottom centering on the back is generally the grade-limiting factor. This particular note has near-perfect centering on the back, with lots of room outside of the design both top and bottom. This is also a type that often comes with little or no originality. The EPQ designation, placed on the holder by PMG, clearly indicates that this note has all its original paper characteristics." The lone Superb Gem that is offered in this auction is an anomaly, the first to be offered in nearly 4 years. With just one winning bidder possible, any successful bidder on this lot will be thrilled to have a piece that rivals the Superb Gem.
