    Very Rare Fr. 321* $20 Silver Star Note - One of Seven Reported

    Fr. 321* $20 1891 Silver Certificate PMG Choice Fine 15.
    Another great star note from the Doug Murray holdings that is not only one of just seven replacements reported for this Friedberg number, it also represents the only signature combination for the entire $20 Silver Certificate series for which star notes were issued. The discovery star for the $20 Silvers when it surfaced in 1977, it is also the first piece to grace one of our auctions since our sale of the Tom Conklin collection at the PCDA show in St. Louis in October of 1995. Bearing four-digit serial number *1144B, which is the second lowest number in the census, it is an evenly circulated specimen with solid paper and pleasing color for the grade. With a PCGS Fine 12 example with some graffiti selling at auction in 2016 for $5,875, our estimate for this problem-free star may well prove very conservative.
