Owner's Description

I find it interesting that Fr-1200, the common Speelman-White 1922 $50 Gold Certificate has 648 graded by PMG (as of 6/1/2018) whereas the Fr-1198 Parker/Burke signature combo from 1913 has only 26 graded. Only 6 notes have graded higher than this note. In addition this note is comment free with excellent colors. The Fr-1198 is 25 times less common than the Fr-1200 but the price differences don't reflect that? I believe those that collect the more rare versions of the notes that have the same design will be rewarded one day.
