    T31 $5 1861 PF-1 Cr. 243.
    An evenly circulated example of the rare red serial number sub-variety that is mentioned in Raphael P. Thian's Register of the Confederate Debt as a footnote on page 28 and listing the serial numbers used as 16901-18200. This is the only major ink change for serial numbers within a single variety listed in the Thian tome. Tonight's PCGS Very Fine 20 example is serial number 17048-A and it is not listed in the Fricke condition census of eight notes, all in the VG to Fine-VF grade range. This example could arguably become the nicest of that exclusive club that includes two notes in the Museum of the Confederacy.
