    Gem 1886 $2 Silver Certificate

    Fr. 241 $2 1886 Silver Certificate PMG Gem Uncirculated 66 EPQ.
    This Rosecrans-Hyatt signed Small Seal Hancock Deuce is by far the rarer of the two numbers of this type. The census shows Fr. 241 outnumbered very nearly two-to-one by its type mate, Fr. 240. This note has spectacularly deep original embossing to go along with its ideal color, huge margins and super freshness. Locating another the likes of this piece would be a task that could take many years. But why bother? This one is here now. It has appeared on the auction only twice before, in 1993 and 2005, sold raw both times but graded fully Gem. PMG has agreed with that assessment and assigned a 66 EPQ grade, which is the higher of its two Gem designations. Rare and lovely.
