    Vivid and Original 1891 $2 Silver Certificate

    Fr. 246 $2 1891 Silver Certificate. PCGS Gem New 65PPQ.
    This is a gorgeous Windom, with decent centering of both sides, great color, and easily seen bold, original serial number embossing. This "A" position note was cut a bit tight along the bottom thus limiting the Gem grade a bit. From a two-number type it has always been a favorite of collectors and is quite difficult to locate in Gem or above. William Windom (who was actually the grandfather of the actor by the same name) served twice as Secretary of the Treasury: 1881 through 1884, and again from 1889 through 1891.
    From the Ernest M. Nepa Collection


    Estimate: $8,000 - up.
