    Extraordinary $1 1928E Silver Certificate

    Fr. 1605 $1 1928E Silver Certificate. PCGS Superb Gem New 68PPQ.
    While the two major grading services have been grading currency for a little over four years, it is becoming clear that their conservative standards will allow few notes of any kind, save for issues that are available in packs, to reach grades of Superb Gem New 67 and above. This extraordinary example of the key to the $1 Silvers is only the fourth ever graded by PCGS at this level. It is beautifully margined, fully bright, and of course, bears the coveted PPQ designation as well as the incredible Superb Gem New 68 designation. The Green Sheet, probably wisely, does not list notes for grades 68 and above, as so few exist that pricing is well near impossible. The last $1 1928E Silver we offered at this lofty level hammered for $9775 on an estimate of $7000-$10,000 and it was just six serial numbers removed from this note. This $1 Silver series began with serial number F72000001B, making tonight's example the 117th note issued for this rare series.
