Popular 1900 $10,000 Gold Certificate
As part of the Stack’s Bowers Galleries January Collectors Choice Online (CCO) Auction of United States currency, we are offering Part III of the Laguna Coast “Gnat” Registry & Rarity Collection, along with an array of other numismatic items.
One notable offering is a Fr. 1225b 1900 $10,000 Gold Certificate graded by PMG as Choice Extremely Fine 45 Net, Cancelled, Stained, Rust. This is a scarcer Lyons-Treat signature combination, with just 13 examples recorded in Track and Price’s census. These notes are always popular, as they can be purchased for less than face value.
