    Rare and Popular 1886 $20 Silver Certificate

    Fr. 316 $20 1886 Silver Certificate PMG Very Fine 30.
    Track & Price lists 28 known examples in their census. The two grading services together have seen 15 of those 28 pieces, with neither service having graded an Uncirculated example. When we last sold this note as part of the Tom Flynn Collection in April 2008, the total census was two pieces lower and the description read, "A very rare number, with only 26 pieces known in all grades combined. According to the most recent Track & Price census, a single Uncirculated note is known, which realized $115,000 at its last auction appearance. Below that, the numbers fall off fairly drastically, with this VF 30 falling in the middle of the census. The note is quite beautiful, with excellent color, broad margins, and the eye appeal of a piece several grades higher than the assigned 30 grade."
