    Rare and Desirable Fr. 313 1886 $20 Silver

    Fr. 313 $20 1886 Silver Certificate PCGS Very Fine 20.
    Series 1886 $20 Silver Certificates are an elusive type. Just over 1.7 million notes were printed for the entire series, comprising the four numbers listed in the Friedberg reference. The Fr. 313 is in a special class however. William Rosecrans and James Hyatt were in office together for less than two years from early 1887 to 1889. Production of the 1886 Series began during their tenure but just 12,000 notes were printed with their signature combination. Today, the survivors are few with only nineteen examples enumerated in the census. This piece is absolutely defect free and bright for its assigned grade, with its boldly printed salmon colored seal contrasting nicely with its blue serial numbers. If rarity, attractiveness and desirability are any guide, our estimate here may well be on the low side.
