    XF 45 Friedberg 868 $5/$10 Double Denomination

    Fr. 868 $5/$10 Double Denomination 1914 Federal Reserve Note PCGS Extremely Fine 45.
    The Sullivan book enumerates eight examples of the Friedberg 868 $5/$10 double denomination error. The eight hail from a total of three sheets, a seemingly strange occurrence when one considers the vast spread of grades from Fine to CU. That can likely be explained, as the notes were probably discovered early on and some were carried as wallet pieces. The presently offered piece lends some credence to that explanation as the XF 45 grade is due to two rather hard folds, though the original embossing remains and there is not a touch of circulation soil. It was likely folded, stuck in an envelope, and spent decades in a bank vault or sock drawer. In any event, double denomination notes are among the most desirable of all errors and the current piece is one of the more affordable high grade examples as the census for this number is rather high considering the rarity of all large size double denominations.
