    Scarce 1869 Rainbow Ace Mismatched Serial Numbers

    Fr. 18 $1 1869 Legal Tender PCGS Fine 15. We last sold this note in our September 2007 Long Beach sale, where it was described, "An incredible new discovery bringing the total of Large Size notes with mismatched serial numbers to just eleven pieces, with this being the only known example of any Rainbow Series note in that group. This is a two-digit mismatch, with the serial on the left reading Z9203467 and the serial on the right reading Z9203471. It is one of only four Large Size notes known of any kind with two or more digits mismatched. This note was recently discovered in the possession of an upstate New York collector, who has had it in his collection for over three decades, but never sought to publicize his long-ago discovery. While price comparisons are obviously inexact for a note of this rarity, the only large-size National with a mismatched serial number realized well over $30,000 when auctioned several years ago. In a stronger and more sophisticated market for truly rare items, expect this attractive and unique Rainbow Ace to likely surpass that record."
