2001 $50 Richmond Star CE00000987* -Top Pop- PCGS 68 PPQ

2001 $50 Richmond Star CE00000987* -Top Pop- PCGS 68 PPQ

Price: $895

This is a truly exceptional example of the BEP Special Issue 2001 $50 Richmond Star.

First off, it is a PCGS Top Pop. Out of a total of 197 notes (Fr. 2127E*) graded by PCGS, only 4 are graded PCGS-68 PPQ with NONE higher (as of June 2012).

Since these notes were issued in holders that held the notes at each of the four corners, it was not uncommon for the corners to be subject to crease marks or handling.

Thus out of 197 graded, only 4 were able to earn the PCGS 68 PPQ grade.

PCGS defines this grade as follows:

“A “68” is basically as nice and as close to perfection as a “69”, but a minor fault may be present, including a tiny handling mark, an edge bump, or a very small counting crinkle. Otherwise, a “68” will be flawless, with excellent centering, bold colors, excellent eye appeal, and full originality.

Despite the mention here of trivial flaws, one should remember that a “68” is an essentially perfect note. It is the highest grade that can reasonably be expected for many series, including most large size type notes.”

In addition, this 3-digit down ladder example represents one of the select few fancy-numbered notes available from this $50 Richmond Star Special Issue. Very low numbers are not available for this Special Issue since it begins with serial #CE00000301*.

All-in-all, a beautiful and rare note, worthy of being considered one of the most appealing notes out of the 3700 offered by the BEP.
