Owner's Description

The elusive Fr-1181. My large gold certificate collection, although limited to mid-grade notes, has been carefully chosen to reflect the beautiful reverse. I have tried to find notes with the most colorful reverse I could find. This is THE example. I paid top dollar for this note $1100) and I would have paid more. It is graded VF35!! Forget the grade! The reverse is just stunning. It is the brightest orange, whitest paper and almost perfect centering of just about my entire gold collection. I have looked at hundreds of Fr. 1180-1187's and the associated mules. THIS NOTE IS MY FAVORITE NOTE. Compare this reverse to any other reverse for the early 20th century $20 gold certificates. I can't find one better than this. Just shows how some mid grades have better eye appeal than top grade GEM's. My finest example of "Buy the Note, not the Holder."
