GC Item Title:Fr. 1218f 1882 $1,000 Gold Certificate Lyons / Roberts PCGS Very Fine 35
Certification Number:
Industry Number
Description:A high denomination large size Gold Certificate note of staggering rarity whose importance to collectors cannot be overstated. This Lyons-Roberts signature combination has only a handful of examples available to the public and is at the top of the examples certified. A slightly more youthful half-length portrait of Alexander Hamilton graces the right side of the face and distinguishes this design from the oft-used more bust portrait of him seen on many other U.S. notes. The back features still bright and lively orange printing, attractively framed by the broad margins around. The edges are overall quite nice and crisp with the top being the only side to show mild handling. Free of pinholes or any detracting qualities it is absolutely worthy of its comment free designation. When notes of this calibre become available you are dealing with an unimaginable rarity for which you should not throw away your shot. Sure to hold a place of prestige in any collection it enters.

About GreatCollections Certified Coin & Currency Auctions

GreatCollections was founded by Ian Russell and Raeleen Endo to improve how coins and paper money are sold at auction. While there are many places to buy and sell coins and paper money, very few ensure that the transaction is conducted in a safe and secure manner while keeping both parties confidential. Since 2010, GreatCollections has auctioned over 800,000 certified coins and paper money totaling over $250 million.

GreatCollections offers collectors, dealers and professionals an extensive selection of certified coins and paper money ranging in price from $25 up to over $100,000 certified by the leading third-party grading companies including PCGS, NGC, PMG and ANACS. GreatCollections is also the leading auction house of CAC approved coins. All coins and currency have been professionally listed, reviewed and imaged by GreatCollections expert staff.
