    Description

    High Grade DC-12

    DC-12 $1 1897
    Few survivors of this one year issue are available in grades approaching VF. Examples in the EF or better grade range are even rarer, with the highest grade to ever grace our auctions, a PMG VF 20, realizing more than $4300 from the Tom Flynn Collection. This one year issue was the first printed by the American Bank Note Company, which established an Ottawa branch plant after it received the government contract. The green face tint used here was also employed on the $2 1897 issue, causing some public confusion, and it was decided to change the face tint on the $1 to light brown to better distinguish it from the $2. This was done within a year, creating a new $1 Series of 1898. PMG Choice Extremely Fine 45.
