    Description

    T18 $20 1861 PF-19 Cr. 126 "AU" Plen.
    A rare Fricke number with the characteristic of a large capital letter above the left A plate letter. In this case, the Plen (plate letter and/or plate number combination) is "AU". Fricke describes the single variety PF-19 number as "rare" with a rarity rating of 10, indicating 21 to 50 known. Fricke also states that each of the Plens for PF-19 (AC, AM, AN, AO, AP, AQ, AR, AS, AT, and AU) have individual rarities of R16 (none seen) to R12 (6 - 10 known). Criswell took another approach with his numbering system as he assigned a different number for each Plen. The note in this lot has serial number 465 as this Fricke number will only have serial numbers 1 through 544. Serial number 465 came out of the Wormser Collection in 1980. It is also listed in the Fricke Condition Census as just one of six serial numbers, but without a grade. Now that we know that it is a nice Fine-Very Fine, we can report that not only does it surpass the other five notes in grade, it is also the only uncancelled example. Even the number of six is deceptive as one note is locked away in the Museum of the Confederacy, another resides in the Thian Album at Duke University, and another example is listed without a serial number and has not been seen in over 57 years, could that be this note?
