    Uncut Block of Eight - Chapman Brothers Pedigree

    Fr. 1229 5¢ First Issue PMG Gem Uncirculated 65 EPQ.
    One of the longest pedigreed Fractional Currency Lots, this piece was best described in 1997 when it was offered as part of the Milt Friedberg Collection of Fractional Currency, "An incredible block of perforated no-monogram notes. This block was lot 912 of the Chapman Bros. June 3, 1903 sale of the Friedman Collection. After that sale, its whereabouts were unknown for about 85 years. Each of the eight notes would individually grade Gem New, as each is well centered, fully perforated, and simply flawless. As a block of perforated notes, this magnificent piece is unequalled." This block is a one-of-a-kind item that and realized $2530 at that 1997 appearance, a number that should easily be bested here this afternoon.
