    Tied for Finest Known Fr. 321

    Fr. 321 $20 1891 Silver Certificate PMG Gem Uncirculated 66 EPQ.
    In 2008, our offering of the Jupiter Collection included this incredible note. Before that, it was part of the incredible Malcolm Trask Collection. In it's 2008 appearance, it was described in part, "As the most common $20 Silver, it is to be expected that a number of uncirculated examples are known. However, strict requirements for Gem status set forth by PMG and PCGS have sent many hopeful submitters packing, with no notes graded higher than Gem Uncirculated 66 thus far. The qualifications for Gem, including sizeable, even margins, bold embossing and rich printed details are all met or exceeded by this near-Superb specimen." Eight years on, this note remains atop the currency pop reports as tied for finest known of the Friedberg number. Just 2 Superb Gems have been graded for the type, both Fr. 320's and neither has ever seen auction. The type in this grade consistently realizes over $30,000 with one realization even sailing past $50,000.
