    Fr. 1605 $1 1928E Silver Certificate. PCGS Superb Gem New 68PPQ.
    While the two major grading services have only been grading currency for a little over one year, it is already 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 Silver Certificates becomes only the second ever graded 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 grading 68 and above, as so few exist that pricing is well near impossible. The last note at this lofty level hammered for over $8000 on an estimate of $6000-$9000. This amazing piece will allow another fortunate collector to commence with the search for the Registry Grail.
