    Tied for Finest Known 1891 $50 Silver Certificate

    Fr. 334 $50 1891 Silver Certificate PCGS Superb Gem New 67PPQ.
    One other in Superb Gem and this note are the only examples to have been graded Superb Gem at the time of cataloging. Of the five other Friedberg numbers that make up the entirety of the 1891 $50 Silver Certificate type, there are no comparable survivors. Even regular Gems are limited in number with just two offerings in the last decade. Both Superb Gems have made auction appearance, and both have realized in the $50,000 to $70,000 range in previous appearances. With less than 50 surviving examples, the Fr. 334 is a nice rarity in its own right, compounded here by the impeccable grade. This would be an acquisition to lift the overall quality and appeal of even the most advanced collections.
