    Fr. 316 $20 1886 Silver Certificate Choice About New. This is a one-number type with the small seal and the diamond-back design. Fewer than two dozen pieces are known for all grades combined, and this is one of the better ones. It's a new note to the census, as are almost all of the Plymouth Rock notes, but it falls right in the range of the only other high grade examples. The AU in the Smithsonian, this note and the CU which we sold for $99,000 in 2001 are all in a span of five serial numbers. This note has a ghost of a center fold, but in all other respects it is a pure gem. The colors are terrific, the print quality is perfect and the margins on both sides are full. The difference in technical quality between this and a six figure note is nil, and the difference in appearence is non-existent. Expect some real competition when this beauty crosses the block.
