    Unique Rainbow Ace With Mismatched Serial Numbers

    Fr. 18 $1 1869 Legal Tender Mismatched Serial Numbers Very Fine. An incredible note which is one of just twelve large size notes with mismatched serial numbers, 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 five large size notes known of any kind with two or more digits mismatched, two of which we are pleased to offer here. This specimen was 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, and sold by us last year. 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 approach or surpass that record.
