Announcement: Tuesday Internet Currency Auctions move to Heritage Live!

Our Weekly Internet Currency Auctions are closing with a live, online auction on HA.com's Heritage Live! platform beginning with the auction that ends Tuesday, September 23rd. Each lot is offered one at a time, in lot number order, in a live auction beginning at 8:00 PM CT. During this part of the auction, live bidders will be on Heritage Live! competing with each other and with previously placed Internet bids. The lot opens, requests live bids, and then closes when the bidding is finished. There is no change in how you place your secret maximum bids during the week the auctions are open on HA.com. In addition, once bidding on HA.com ends, 2 hours before the live sessions start, you still have the option to leave proxy bids through Heritage Live!

For more information about Heritage Live!, please visit HA.com/live. If you have any questions about this exciting format change, please contact us at 800-872-6467 or Bid@HA.com.

Description:
Possibly Finest Known Fr. 1351
Fr. 1351 Milton 3R50.8 50¢ Third Issue Justice Choice New. This stunning Fr. 1351 was from our January 1997 sale of the Milt Friedberg Collection. It was described there, "This pristine example of this important rarity is either the finest known example or tied for it. Its brightness and flash are equal to the Gengerke piece, and the margins are clearly superior. The note exhibits its full original embossing, and it is a Gem in all respects but for a small brown spot near Justice's upraised arm which holds the scales. When the Encyclopedia was printed in 1978, only four pieces were known, with this one being the plate note. The current total is either nine or ten, with only two others close to this in grade, one of which was the Gengerke piece, Lot 161 of our January 6, 1995 Sale which brought $18,700." The 2005 census is thirteen examples. The O'Mara piece is one of four in or around the Choice grade. The ex-Boyd Stack's example, which is identical to this piece in grade but with slightly inferior centering (the right face margin is extremely narrow), auctioned last May for $21,850. A year later, with a number of new entrants in the higher-end Fractional market, this piece will likely reach or exceed . . .
