$1,000 DeWitt Clinton -- One of the Finest Available to Collectors

Fr. 187j $1000 1880 Legal Tender Extremely Fine. Of the thirteen examples known, only four are this nice or better, and three of those are permanently off the market. One is in the Chicago Federal Reserve Bank, the other resides in the San Francisco branch and the only known Uncirculated note is in the ANA Museum. This beautiful piece has exceptional margins, great color, ideal centering of both sides and no repairs or restorations of any kind. When last on the market in December of 2000, it missed the six-figure mark by the narrowest of margins, realizing a nice round $99,000. Auctions are always question marks and whether or not it crosses the magical six-figure barrier tonight is anyone's guess. Our guess is yes.

I know for a fact that the sale by Heritage was way beyond what I was offered by other people. If I had to do it over again, I would absolutely choose Heritage again.
