    1928A Federal Reserve Note $10/$5 Double Denomination

    Fr. 2001-E $10/5 1928A Double Denomination Federal Reserve Note. PMG About Uncirculated 50 Net.
    Just four different small size double denomination errors are known to collectors, each with multiple examples known. Including this, there is a 1934D $5/$10, the 1950A $10/$1, and the 1974 $20/$10. Of the four, this double denomination is the rarest, with just eight recorded serial numbers in the census. Appearances are infrequent as collectors tend to keep these "Trophy Notes" for a long time. Their rarity cannot be understated and is what lead to the term "King of Errors." This example shows a minor, but professional restoration in the upper left corner. The margins have been trimmed down at top and bottom, but do not touch the design on either side. Despite the minor issues, there are few opportunities to add this error to a world-class error collection.
