    Fr.1233 Milton 2R5.2g 5¢ Second Issue Full Sheet of 20 Courtesy Autographed Extremely Fine. This unique courtesy-autographed sheet is signed by John Burke 15 times between the notes. This sheet earned the single largest photograph in Milt's Encyclopedia filling nearly half of page 43. There are a few light folds in the sheet causing the technical grade of Extremely Fine, but it is amazingly attractive. This would be the centerpiece of any exhibit of Courtesy Autographed Notes. John Burke was Treasurer of the United States between 1913 and 1921. It appears from the frequency of his courtesy autograph on Fractional Currency, that he signed an individual's entire collection. This sheet was from our sale of the Milt Friedberg Collection in January of 1997. It was estimated there at $1,500 up and realized just a hair over estimate at $1,540.
