    Superb 1880 $10 Silver Certificate

    Fr. 288 $10 1880 Silver Certificate Superb Gem New. This is the fifth spectacular Fr. 288 that we've sold from the same run of serial numbers. This piece is the equal of any of them, with terrific original embossing, broad margins and perfect paper quality. Fr. 288 is far scarcer than its type-mate, Fr. 289. About sixty 288's are known to exist, and there are over 130 Fr. 289's. We've sold this note once before in September of 2000 when it realized $12,100. It's a simply spectacular piece, with broad even margins, perfect paper quality, ideal color, and all its original embossing. An essentially flawless note that could easily set a price record for its number.
