    Lovely Fr. 289

    Fr. 289 $10 1880 Silver Certificate PMG Choice About Uncirculated 58.
    From our "Sky Room Collection" sale in April of 2009, where we described this as follows: "Of the 77 examples known, only a single piece has reached auction in a PCGS or PMG holder at a level above this lovely PMG 58. That note, a PMG 64, realized $34,500 in our April 2008 sale. This will be the second highest grade third-party Fr. 287 to sell at auction, and it's a beauty. The colors, margins, and eye-appeal are that of a perfect Gem, and the reason for the 58 grade is not visible to us through the PMG holder." Dusty Gibson fell in love with this note the first time he laid eyes on it, and explained to me that while he seldom bought type notes for five figure prices, this piece was so exceptional that he simply had to own it. Two years later, it is just as nice, and it would not surprise us at all to see a similar realization tonight. Incidentally this note is actually a Fr. 289 and PMG would be happy to correct it.
    From the Dustinn (Dusty) Lee Gibson Collection
