    High-Grade Fr. 735 $1 Minneapolis FRBN

    Fr. 735 $1 1918 Federal Reserve Bank Note PMG Choice About Uncirculated 58 EPQ.
    A very scarce $1 Minneapolis district note with Cook and Young signatures. This has traditionally been considered the key in the $1 FRBN issues. Based on serial number data studies, approximately 600,000 were printed. The census of extant notes has increased in the past dozen years (since our Tom Flynn Collection sale) with additional notes reported. However, these are rarely encountered in such top condition. There is only one note graded Uncirculated by either major service, the Flynn (PMG Gem Uncirculated 65 EPQ). This high-grade note boasts a Rickey Collection pedigree (Lyn Knight, September 2012 sale, lot 1033 realizing $4,600) and at the time it was one of approximately 50 notes known. There are perhaps only a few finer, among less than a dozen About Uncirculated notes recorded, than this faintly handled note. The record price for an example was the Tom Flynn Collection note we sold in April 2008. That was a magnificent top-population piece which realized $12,650. Mike purchased this from our 2015 Long Beach auction for $1,762.50, then encapsulated by PCGS Currency (on the census, but not in Track & Price's auction records). It is now certified by PMG. Friedberg 735 is seldom offered in this superior condition, and its Dave Rickey Collection pedigree adds additional significance.
    From The Mike Coltrane Collection.
