    Extraordinary $100 1928 Gold Certificate Star

    Fr. 2405* $100 1928 Gold Certificate. Extremely Fine-About Uncirculated.
    A simply extraordinary note which we are privileged to offer here for the first time. We have never seen or heard of a nicer $100 1928 Gold Certificate star than this gorgeous example. It is brilliantly colored, with bright white paper and a vivid gold overprint, and at first appearance it appears to be nothing less than a screaming gem new note. Close examination reveals three light folds, none of which can be seen without removing the note from its holder. There has been so little actual circulation here that the full embossing around the seal is still visible on the back. This is a rare note in any grade, with a total printing of just 12,000 pieces, and prohibitively so in any grade above Very Fine. Even the massive Taylor family collection, assembled by a collector with unlimited resources and arguably the finest collection of small notes ever formed, was able to obtain only a Fine+ specimen with a bank stamp on the reverse. Expect this utterly original and perhaps finest known star example to create considerable bidding interest amongst those collectors who have waited years for the opportunity to own a truly high grade and utterly original example of this rarity.
