    One of the Finest Known Fr. 311s

    Fr. 311 $20 1880 Silver Certificate PCGS About New 50. Although Fr. 311 is not a terribly rare number with 135 pieces known, it is a significant rarity in high grade. The only PCGS or PMG note above this level to have sold at public auction was a PMG 58 which realized $37,000 in June 2007. Below that, was a PCGS 45 which we sold this past April for over $18,000. The note has the appearance of a Gem Uncirculated piece, with broad margins, perfect color and razor-sharp print quality. Both sides are beautifully centered, and the black ink of the back is so bold as to be nearly reflective. A very handsome example of a type that is seldom available in this high a grade.
