    First Issue Denomination Set of John Burke Courtesy Autographs

    First Issue Denomination Set of Courtesy Autographs PMG Graded Fr. 1230 5¢ About Uncirculated 50; Fr. 1242 10¢ Choice Uncirculated 64 EPQ; Fr. 1281 25¢ Gem Uncirculated 65 EPQ; Fr 1312 50¢ Extremely Fine 40.
    All four notes are identically signed by John Burke. His is the most common courtesy autograph on Fractional notes, but full sets such as this are very rare, and only appear when major collections are sold. This group was from one of the John Jay Ford sales. PMG has holdered this in a specialty holder, with the notes graded individually, but the set kept together. Therefore, the item count is one for this lot. The 5¢ back label mentions pinholes.
    From the Tabacco Family Collection

    Estimate: $1,500 - up.
