FR 2408 "CLEVELAND" $1,000 C.G.C. 50
FR 2408 $1,000 1928 GOLD CERTIFICATE GEM CGC 50! THIS IS A PQ NOTE, HOWEVER, CGC (WHICH PIONEERED DESIGNATIONS FOR PAPER MONEY) GRADED THIS PIECE "PRIOR" TO INITIATING THESE DESIGNATIONS (SAME AS Pmg, who did not add Epq until much later after they opened as well), but this note would certainly receive the PQ designation if re-submitted to CGC. THIS IS THE FINEST CGC HAS GRADED AND THIS CENTERPIECE NOTE LOOKS MUCH HIGHER AESTHETICALLY THAN IT'S TECHNICAL GRADE! THIS PIECE HAS INCREDIBLY NICE CENTERING / MARGINS AND COLORS. THERE ARE ONLY ABOUT 4 OTHERS IN AU THAT WE KNOW OF (BY ALL GRADING CO'S) AND FOUR OR FIVE "SUPPOSEDLY" IN CU (WE HAVE NEVER SEEN NOR HAS CGC A TRUE UNC). IN ANY EVENT, THIS IS PERHAPS THE NICEST PIECE OF THIS TYPE THAT WILL BE AVAILABLE IN THE OPEN MARKET!
