Owner's Description

This note was bought ungraded at a Lyn Knight auction in late 2017. I am always hesitant to buy ungraded because the probabaility of getting a NET note is high. The auction house described as "Almost Uncirculated" When I received the note, it had a few more crinkles and a very tiny area that might be construed as a problem area thus the possibility of NET. However, it came back PMG 53. Lyn Knight's assessment was dead on. And the $881.25 auction price was not too high nor was it a screaming bargain, so all in all, a good upgrade choice for the Fr. 1185. 28 notes out of 214 total graded are higher thus this note so this note is in the top 15% of 1185's graded. As always, i carefully scrutinize the reverse of $20 GC's for outstanding color. This 1185 meets my standards. Beautiful flaming orange reverse.
