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 green color on the seal and serials is dark and bold. The Friedberg number is Fr. 2013-E and the signatures are Smith-Dillon.
This note has been certified by PMG as Superb Gem Uncirculated (CU) 68EPQ, which puts it at the top of the PMG population report totem pole, tied with only one other example, which I've owned in the past. This note has incredible original, clean paper, the sharpest of corners and edges and fantastic centering wih large margins on all four sides, front and back.
The BEP was definitely on their "A game" the day this note was produced. Early Federal Reserve Notes rock! I love trying to put together district sets (A-1 through L-12) of each series in nice grades, which is a very challenging endeavor. It makes collecting really fun. If you need any particular districts for your sets, message me and I may have duplicates (I have hundreds of certified FRN's - they are my passion and I believe they are a great long-term value play for investing).The best part of this note's grade aside from the 68, of course! 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.
