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:
Serial Number 1 Fr. 1185
Fr. 1185 $20 1906 Gold Certificate Gem New. Only 9,380,000 Fr. 1185's were produced, making this the only serial-number-one Fr. 1185 to have ever existed. It's an absolutely perfect piece, with beautiful margins, terrific paper surfaces, near perfect centering of both sides and bright, flashy ideal color. It's only previous market appearance was as Lot 753 in the March 1945 Barney Bluestone auction of the incomparable Grinnell Collection. To type-note collectors, Serial Number One notes represent the pinnacle of the hobby, and Malcolm Trask proved to be far ahead of his time when he spent the required premium to acquire these very special pieces. Although this unique note is the only Serial Number One ever produced for Fr. 1185, there were six different signature combinations of 1906 Twenties, and serial-number-one notes are known for two of those six numbers, Fr. 1184 being the other.
From the collection of Malcolm A. Trask.

Needless to say I was overwhelmed by the results of the auction and I truly believe it was Jill’s efforts in promoting and displaying the piece that brought in the extra value.
