    Fully Gem $10 1880 Silver Certificate Friedberg 288

    Fr. 288 $10 1880 Silver Certificate PCGS Gem New 65PPQ.
    Only a handful of notes for the entire type have reached the Gem level at both services combined. This one is a true Gem with exceptional centering, perfect color, and readily apparent deep, original embossing that can be easily seen through the third-party holder. 1880 Silver Certificates have, in our opinion, always been undervalued. Notes like the presently offered piece are historic treasures that deserve far more attention from outside the currency community. Although somewhat lesser known than many of his compatriots, Robert Morris' role as a founding father was considerable, and like the note that bears his portrait, deserves more attention. In any event, the two most recent PGCS 65PPQ examples appeared in 2010 at $21,800 and 2005 at $18,400. With a gap of seven years and far more appreciation for rarity (there are only 82 examples in all grades combined), we would expect a realization this evening in excess of $30,000.
