    Unique and High Grade Fr. 9a Ten Dollar Cincinnati "for the" Demand Note

    Fr. 9a $10 1861 Demand Note PMG Very Fine 30.
    When last on the market at the sale of the Bass Collection in 1999, this spectacular Cincinnati "for the" Demand Note realized over $86,000--a huge price at that time. Prior to that, it had been part of the Schermerhorn Collection, and before Robert Schermerhorn it was owned by Albert A. Grinnell, from whose collection it was sold in the first Barney Bluestone Grinnell catalog on November 25, 1944. After the 1999 Bass sale, the note became part of the Dr. Edward & Joanne Dauer Collection which we sold in September 2008. The information from that sale is mis-listed in Track & Price with a slightly different serial number erroneously raising the census to two. This note is simply breathtaking. It is a solid, problem-free Very Fine, which would be an amazing grade for any Demand Note. But this is far from any Demand Note. It is the only known "for the" Demand Note that exists from either of the two Midwest depositories. It is also one of the most handsome of the "for the" notes in existence, with the all important hand-written signatures and "for the" bold, clear and bright. The colors of the note are incredible, and it is letter-perfect for its grade without a hint of a defect, repair or restoration. A truly great note that will help define the collection it enters as one of the very best in existence.
