    Memorable $100 1928 Gold Certificate

    Fr. 2405 $100 1928 Gold Certificate. PCGS Gem New 65PPQ.
    We sold this note back in 2003, long before the advent of third party grading, commenting "An absolutely exceptional small size $100 Gold Certificate, which combines unusually vivid colors with far better than average face and back centering, and, even more surprisingly, has retained its full originality as well. This is a premium piece from an issue which is awfully hard to find this nice." PCGS clearly agrees with our earlier assessment, placing this beauty in a Gem New 65PPQ holder, one of only three Gold hundreds to receive this grade, with only two higher (and those by a point each.) The last $100 Gold to sell at auction in this grade was the lone PMG 65 EPQ example they have graded (also with two higher by a point each), with that piece realizing over $38,000 in our ANA sale last August. Expect this rarity to easily reach and perhaps well exceed that price this afternoon, but with a Gem 66PPQ sailing past $100,000 in our January auction, the range may be irrelevant.
