Don't fall for "High Grade, " "Superb Grade, " "Awesome Grade" uncertified notes being offered online. Most of the time, there is a reason why they are not in a third-party grading company holder.
It's a multi-million dollar epidemic. Avoid being taken advantage of! The dark blue color on the seal and serials is nice and bold. The Friedberg number is Fr. 1604 and the treasury signatures are Julian-Woodin.
This note has been freshly certified and graded by PMG as Extremely Fine (XF) 40EPQ, which makes it an ideal grade for collectors looking to put together nice sets of higher-end material. The 1928-D series is better than the 1928 Plain, 1928-A and 1928-B -- simply not as many printed. Then, within the'28-D universe, not all 28-D's were created equal.
The D-B, I-B, and H-B Blocks (in that order) dominate the PMG population report in terms of the quantity that has been graded, with dozens and dozens available in nicer grades. The G-B Block is one of the tougher blocks that did not see as much production on the'28-D series. There have been only a dozen examples ever certified by PMG in a higher grade and most of those would sell for 5-10x the price I'm asking here if they came up for sale somewhere. The design was changed for the 1935 series, making these older types fairly desirable and popular notes.The best part of this note's grade is the "EPQ" that was awarded by PMG. For those of you out there just starting out in the hobby, its a great idea to look for original, exceptional paper quality when shopping for notes.
Greedy dealers of today and yester-year have dreamt up a number of ways to "improve" a note's appearance to unsuspecting and untrained eyes in an attempt to maximize profits pressing, chemically treating, etc. The sad thing about this is that such deceitful and unnatural tactics ruin a note's originality forever. But I have a feeling that you won't want to return it once you have it in your hand. I just received back several hundred notes from PMG and there is a lot of exciting, rare, high-grade stuff in these stacks. Almost my entire collection is decent, quality material.I have worked hard on developing my "eye" for original, problem-free notes over the years and have been cherry picking shops and shows for over a decade. I will be highly responsive to all inquiries. Auctiva offers Free Image Hosting and Editing.
