    Well Embossed, Brilliantly Colored, Fully Gem Boston District $100 Red Seal FRN

    Fr. 1072a $100 1914 Red Seal Federal Reserve Note PCGS Gem New 65.
    Only 25 examples are known of this number, but unlike most rare notes, the majority of the pieces are high end Uncirculated examples, coming from a single short run that broke at Memphis in the early 80s. This note is from that run, and like all the others, it's a simply super piece, with strong original embossing, good margins, and ideal colors. We sold the consecutive serial number example in 2002, which was before the grading services. That note realized just short of $10,000 at that time. It appears that the entire hoard is now on the market as no new serial numbers have been recorded in recent years. With the census stabilized and the demand for high quality notes ever increasing, prices have risen very dramatically.
