Fr. 1185 $20 1906 Gold Certificate Gem New....
Serial Number 1 Fr. 1185Fr. 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.
