    Serial Number 1 San Francisco District $1,000

    Fr. 2211-L $1,000 1934 Light Green Seal Federal Reserve Note. PMG Very Fine 25.
    One of the highlights of tonight's auction, this is the only reported serial number 1 $1,000 Federal Reserve Note outside of government hands, with the Smithsonian holding a number 1 from the Chicago district for both the 1928 and 1934 Series. Considering that only a combined total of 24 serial number 1's were printed for both series of $1,000s, this piece is a true miracle of survival. Surprisingly, it was not tucked away at its issuance, but rather, spent some time in circulation before it was spotted by a sharp-eyed collector. PMG has noted some minor restoration of edge splits, but otherwise, it is a bright and attractive note with excellent color and an overall pleasing appearance. A true wonder note for either the number 1 collector or the specialist in $1,000 FRNs.
