Fr. 1218f. 1882 $1000 Gold Certificate. PMG Very Fine 25.Offered here is an important piece of financial history. Missing from most advanced collections of US Paper Money, it is just one of eleven documented survivors for the Friedberg number with one of those eleven housed in the collection of the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco. A portrait of Alexander Hamilton is seen at right. At center is a small red Treasury Seal with GOLD overprinted in gold letters.
A large 1000 counter is found at left. Bold blue serial numbers are seen within gold panels at lower left and upper right. The engraved signatures of Lyons and Roberts are along the bottom frame line. A bald eagle with shield is at center while a large Roman numeral M counter is seen at left. It is nicely margined on all four sides and the orange back remains bold and solid despite the circulation observed. PMG comments "Stains Lightened.".
