    Highest Graded Fr. 299 $10 1891 Silver Certificate

    Fr. 299 $10 1891 Silver Certificate PMG Superb Gem Unc 67 EPQ.
    "Ample margins, ideal centering, and pleasingly original paper combine perfectly for a Superb Gem grade. Population reports reveal a telling story for both the type collector and Friedberg number collector. This piece sits atop the population reports with no equal, and none finer known for this signature combination. Four Friedberg numbers cover the 1891 $10 Silvers, and to date, only three other Superb's have been graded. Any estimate here is just a guess as no PMG or PCGS graded pieces have been sold publicly at this level, save for a low serial number E8 Fr. 298 that realized $69,000." That was the description we used when this note appeared in our September 2008 Auction of the Jupiter Collection. In the intervening five years, the grading services have seen no other 67. PCGS has never graded one and PMG has graded this lone example with nothing higher. At its last appearance, it realized $23,000 and we would expect that or more this evening.
