    Handsome 1878 Triple Signature $20 Silver Certificate

    Fr. 307 $20 1878 Silver Certificate Fine-Very Fine. Only the fourth example of this number that CAA has offered, and we've had none since 1999. Only fifteen examples are known, four of which are permanently impounded in museum or Federal Reserve Bank hands. No uncirculated examples exist, and the high-grade pieces are two AU's and an XF. This note has excellent color, small but decent margins all the way around, and no visible problems. It has a masterfully repaired, virtually undetectable tear, and some blank paper has been replaced in the bottom margin, again, undetectable to all but the most expert of scrutiny. The note has the full visual impact and eye appeal of a Very Fine. Triple signature Twenties almost never reach the market, and this attractive example is likely to be hotly contested when it crosses the block tonight.
