    Gem Small Red Seal Tombstone PCGS 66PPQ

    Fr. 299 $10 1891 Silver Certificate PCGS Gem New 66PPQ. When we last sold this note in September 2007, we described it: "This note was sold by us in the Malcolm Trask Collection sale of January, 2005 as part of a cut sheet of Tombstone notes. Each note was a broadly margined Superb Gem, with perfect original paper surfaces, ideal color, and excellent centering. This piece, the "D" position example, was singled out for special mention as having the best margins of the group. It has now returned to us encapsulated in a PCGS Gem New 66PPQ holder, and, having viewed this note in its pre-holdered state, we can attest to the conservative nature of that assessment. We have never had a Fr. 299 in either PMG or PCGS 66, but we can report the one PCGS 65PPQ note offered by us realized $10,350 in May of this year. This specimen will bring more, and likely substantially more." At that sale, it realized $14,375--a number that could well be equaled this evening.
    From the Joseph C. Thomas Collection
