    Gem Fr. 229a Black Eagle

    Fr. 229a $1 1899 Silver Certificate PMG Gem Uncirculated 65 EPQ.
    "The scarcest of the Black Eagles, with only 111 examples enumerated in the Track & Price census, the vast majority of which are heavily circulated. Very few 229a's in PMG or PCGS holders have yet to reach the auction market. The highest of them was another PMG 65 that realized $21,850 in our September 2007 auction. This beautifully margined piece, with its fully bright colors and the PMG 'Exceptional Paper Quality' accolade should approach that figure." That was our description when we sold this note as part of Tom Flynn's Collection in April 2008. Since that time, the Track & Price census has risen from 111 to 213, but as in 2008, the great majority of the notes are heavily circulated. Between PCGS and PMG together, there are only eight examples at this level.
