    Gem 1899 $2 Star Note

    Fr. 258* $2 1899 Silver Certificate PMG Gem Uncirculated 65 EPQ.
    Originally from our September 2004 CSNS Auction where it was cataloged, "1899 Deuce Star Notes are all rather scarce, with only 75 examples reported for all ten varieties known. Of those 75 notes, only about a dozen and a half are Uncirculated, and this has to be one of the very nicest. It is an immaculate piece, with deep original embossing, bright flashy color, excellent centering of both sides, and an excess of eye appeal." In the intervening years the total of known star notes has almost doubled, but the reported Uncirculated total has remained virtually unchanged, leaving this as one of the nicest replacement notes for the design available to collectors." PMG has clearly agreed with our original Gem assessment, as they have not only assigned a 65 grade, but have added the comments "Exceptional Paper Quality, Great Embossing."
