    Newly Discovered Fr. 304 Invert-The Sole Example in Private Hands

    Fr. 304 $10 1908 Silver Certificate Inverted Back Fine-Very Fine. A new discovery which brings to four the number of recorded inverted reverse large size $10 Silver Certificates. Of that group, one resides in the Smithsonian Institution and is unlikely to become available to collectors in the foreseeable future, and CAA has now, with this example, sold all three of the remaining notes. Remarkably, each note is in identical grade, despite being discovered over a multi-year period and in quite different locations. Two are Friedberg 302's, the first of which we sold in 1997 for $4675 and the second, sold as part of our extensive invert offering in January, 2000, for $5775. The example we now offer is absolutely original and unmolested, a perfect circulated note but for the most trivial of splits at the top. With both of the other examples in long term holdings, this attractive piece, the only Fr. 304 invert in private hands, may well represent the sole opportunity for a collector of these fascinating errors to obtain any $10 large size Silver Certificate for many years.
