This incredible example of a prohibitively rare 1882 $1000 Gold Certificate is the finest known for this type and seal combination and there are only two such examples in private hands. This note all by itself in any other major currency sale would make that sale one for the record books. How amazing it is to have this note share the limelight with so many other treasures!
