    Second Finest Known Fr. 315

    Fr. 315 $20 1886 Silver Certificate About New. A lovely example of a type that is virtually never seen this nice. The note has had only one prior auction appearance in October of 2000 when it realized $29,700. There are only about 20 Fr. 315's known, and this is the second-highest grade reported. The only uncirculated note that appears in the census was part of the Robert Schermerhorn Collection--it has never reached the auction block and its present whereabouts are unknown to us. This note is as pretty as any uncirculated piece could be with bold color, broad margins, and excellent centering of both sides. It falls just short of the full Uncirculated grade.
