    Superb Gem New 67PPQ Fr. 136 $20 Legal

    Fr. 136 $20 1880 Legal Tender PCGS Superb Gem New 67PPQ.
    A note that we crossed paths with just once before. It was in our September 2001 Cincinnati auction and before PMG and PCGS had jumped into the third party grading competition. We praised it then, and, we will repeat those words now, "(It) is a flawless beauty, with deep original embossing, perfect colors of the paper and ink and outsize margins all the way around. The centering of the back is every bit as good as that of the perfectly centered face, and the note has the look and feel, as well as all the technical merits, for which every collector of the very best in Type Notes strives." Today, we can add information gleaned from the databases from both of the two major grading services. They tell us that those two combined have only graded four equal and none higher. The last Fr. 136 in this third party grade to cross the auction block was a PMG 67 EPQ example that received a winning bid of $17,625 in 2015.
