    Very Scarce Fr. 291 Tombstone - PMG Choice Extremely Fine 45 EPQ

    Fr. 291 $10 1886 Silver Certificate PMG Choice Extremely Fine 45 EPQ.
    "A scarce and beautiful early back Tombstone $10. Only about a dozen examples of this number are known and it can be quite a long time between appearances of nice examples. This one traces its history back to Bill Donlon's personal collection and then on to Frank Levitan where it realized just under $5,000 in 1998. Three years later in its next auction appearance, it brought a seemingly inexplicable $24,200. It is a beautiful note with bright colors and much of the look of a Gem." That was the description which we used when we sold this lovely note in our February 2005 auction. Since that time, the Track & Price census has risen to 23, most of which are low grade.
