A pleasing Fr.2404* 1920 $50 Gold Certificate Star Note
graded About Uncirculated 55 EPQ will be offered in the Stack’s Bowers
Galleries November currency auction. Just around 40 examples of this rare small
size replacement type are recorded in the census.
The offered example displays bright paper and broad margins.
The golden colored overprint is vibrant and exceptionally well printed. The
engraved design elements are all darkly inked and vividly detailed as well. The
note appears to have avoided any actual circulation; some light corner handling
appears to account for the technical grade.
This note will carry a pre-auction estimate of
$20,000-$30,000. The Stack’s Bowers
Galleries November U.S. Currency Auction will be held November 11-13, 2020. For
more information on our November auction visit StacksBowers.com, where
the entire sale will be available online by late October. To consign your
United States paper money to an upcoming auction, please contact Director of
