Owner's Description

Finding a Fr-1197 with beautiful orange colors on the reverse is incredibly rare thus commands a high price. PMG shows 123 notes in their population report. Only 18 have a higher grade. I have seen a couple of 30PPQ's up to 40 that has nice coloring. However, most of these notes low grade, the back is faded orange, sometimes with sufficient soiling to make the reverse lose all it's eye appeal. In my gold certificate collection (won Best Presented Set in 2017) the eye appeal of the reverse is the major factor. I paid up for this note because I wanted the gorgeous reverse that I felt the price was fair enough to stand the test of time. With exception of my Fr-1181 reverse, this is one of the most beautiful notes in my GC collection.
