    Daniel Morgan Courtesy Autograph on a PCGS 65 PPQ Fr. 141

    Fr. 141 $20 1880 Legal Tender Courtesy Autograph PCGS Gem New 65PPQ.
    "Daniel Morgan has autographed the note in dark gray ink directly above his engraved signature that appears on the note as Treasurer of the U.S. Morgan is a relatively common Courtesy Autograph, but his favored gray ink was either very light to begin with or had a tendency to fade over time, as many of the Morgan Courtesy Autographs we have seen are extremely light gray and barely visible. This one is dark and bold, and the host note is Gem quality, with broad margins and terrific color." That description was used in our September 2013 Long Beach auction when we sold the consecutive serial-number note in a PMG 65 EPQ holder. This is one of the very few Courtesy Autograph notes in the Riverdale Collection that will not realize much of a premium for its Courtesy Autograph. Morgan is by far the most common Courtesy in the entire field, and he signed a number of high-grade Fr. 141's. The host note is a beauty, with the 65PPQ grade a touch conservative in our estimation.
