    Bronze "1000" Bond Protector Partial Block of Five

    Milton 2E25F.7 25¢ Second Issue Bronze 1000 Bond Paper PCGS Banknote Choice Unc 64 PPQ, 64 PPQ, 64, 63 and 63 Details.
    This partial block is one of the highlights of the Tabacco family collection. Four of these five notes were from Ford 19 Lot 311 in October of 2007. In his full-page description of those four notes, Bruce Hagen speculated that this partial block of four is "...likely to be the most complete in existence." He also mentioned that there was a single upper-left position note in our 2005 O'Mara sale that had previously come from our 1997 Milt Friedberg sale, and that that perhaps could be one of the two missing pieces. Carmine had that piece, so this has now become a partial block of five, with only the upper-right position missing. The large "1000" was intended as a protector for bonds. The purpose is identical, but the design is completely different from the bond protector "FIFTY" Experimentals, which use letters to spell out the numeral. As a block of five out of six, it is now a virtual certainty that this is the largest in existence. When the upper-left piece sold in our O'Mara sale in 2005, it realized $1035. That is the note with the Details grade for a "Small Chip Missing," which is at the lower left and fairly insignificant. (Total: 5 notes)
