    Very Rare Fr. 297

    Fr. 297 $10 1886 Silver Certificate PMG Very Fine 25. Fr. 297 is the rarest of the Tombstones, with a total known census of fourteen. PMG and PCGS combined have graded only four examples, none of which is uncirculated. This PMG 25 from the Flynn Collection is a solid, attractive mid-grade note. The margins are terrific, as is the centering of both sides. The colors remain strong, and save for the normal minor impairments expected with the 25 grade, the note is perfect. A very nice combination of decent grade and extreme rarity, and a number that is on the wish list of all but a handful of Large Size collectors.
    From The Thomas M. Flynn Collection
