    Tied for the Finest Certified $50 Chicago Star

    Fr. 1880-G* $50 1929 Federal Reserve Bank Star Note. PCGS Banknote Extremely Fine 40.
    With a printing run of only 4,000 and a population that now stands at eight total examples, these $50 Chicago FRBN Stars are truly scarce. Many of the stars listed in the census exhibit a variety of problems. Fortunately, that is not the case with this lightly circulated example, which exhibits very pleasing color and is tied for the finest graded by the major service. Five years ago, we sold a PMG Extremely Fine 40 example for $4,935.
