The Friedberg number is Fr. 1654Wi (Wide I variety) and the treasury signatures are Clark-Snyder. Nice pack-fresh, certified "Superb Gem+" example here with big, bold, even margins. This note looks like it was printed yesterday -- wow. For the R-A Block, this is a "Top Pop" example at PMG -- no 69's have ever been awarded, with only five (5) piers tied with it at the same grade of 68EPQ.Only a single 69EPQ exists for this variety, from the Q-A Block. 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.
