    Choice Fr. 288 $10 Silver Certificate

    Fr. 288 $10 1880 Silver Certificate PCGS Choice New 63PPQ.
    Our consignor bought this piece in 2005, just prior to third party grading accelerating this part of the hobby. We called it Very Choice New with the following description, "Gem in every respect save for the margins. Both the top and bottom margins are somewhat skewed, with the bottom margin's coming rather close to the design as it approaches the left end of the note. The piece has original paper surfaces, reasonably bright colors and strong eye appeal which is enhanced by the larger and brighter than normal red and blue anticounterfeiting fibers scattered throughout the paper. Under 70 examples of this number are known in all grades combined." PCGS also likes the note for a Choice New grade, but our argument for Very Choice New is made quite clear.
