    Likely Unique Same Serial Number Pair

    Fr. 1911-L $1 1981 Federal Reserve Notes Crisp Uncirculated. We've sold this pair twice before, once in January of 1996 and again in May of 2003. In our previous sales, we noted "This is a pair of notes which should not exist. They are each from the same series and plate position, and each bear the same serial number. The plate numbers on the right are different. There is no question of the authenticity of these notes and no trace whatever of any tampering with the serial numbers. Every expert who has examined the pair has come away without an explanation as to how this has occurred." When last offered this pair realized $8337.50, and we see no reason why it will not realize that or more in its current offering. (Total: 2 notes)
