Don't fall for "High Grade, " "Superb Grade, " "Awesome Grade" uncertified notes being offered online. Most of the time, there is a reason why they are not in a third-party grading company holder. It's a multi-million dollar epidemic.Avoid being taken advantage of! The blue color on the seal and serials is nice and bold. The Friedberg number is Fr. 1619 and the treasury signatures are Priest-Anderson.
Very nice, pack-fresh example here from the'57 Plain series -- certified and graded by PMG as Superb Gem Uncirculated 67EPQ! Only 9.6 million notes were printed with serial numbers from this block (it was the very last block printed before Silver Certificates were discontinued altogether). All of the other preceding blocks saw print totals well into the tens of millions, all the way up to 99.99+ million.
The best part of this note's grade is the "EPQ" that was awarded by PMG. For those of you out there just starting out in the hobby, its a great idea to look for original, exceptional paper quality when shopping for notes. Greedy dealers of today and yester-year have dreamt up a number of ways to "improve" a note's appearance to unsuspecting and untrained eyes in an attempt to maximize profits pressing, chemically treating, etc. The sad thing about this is that such deceitful and unnatural tactics ruin a note's originality forever.
But I have a feeling that you won't want to return it once you have it in your hand. I just received back several hundred notes from PMG and there is a lot of exciting, rare, high-grade stuff in these stacks.
Almost my entire collection is decent, quality material. I have worked hard on developing my "eye" for original, problem-free notes over the years and have been cherry picking shops and shows for over a decade. I will be highly responsive to all inquiries.
