Near-Superb Vernon-McClung Fr. 229a 1899 $1 Silver CertificateFr. 229a $1 1899 Silver Certificate PMG Gem Uncirculated 66 EPQ.
A pleasing example of what used to be the rarest Black Eagle type overall, although in this grade it certainly is not easy to locate. Fr. 229a remains the toughest by far of the Black Eagles in top grade. Fr. 231 is very slightly rarer but far more available at the top end of the grading scale. This note is currently tied with four other notes for finest known at PMG. PCGS has not graded anything higher than 65PPQ. It is as pretty as it is rare with bold inks, great centering, and freshness for the type that is not often seen. Over three years have elapsed with the last 66 EPQ to appear at auction we sold for $15,275 and we see no reason why this note should not finish near the same.
