    Milton 4E10F.2 10¢ Fourth Issue Essay PCGS Banknote Choice XF 45.
    We have been telling the story of the origin of these notes since they first appeared in the mid '80s. Because of resales and the wonders of cut and paste, the description is now far more common than the notes themselves. "This note was cut from the only known sheet at the 1986 Memphis show. The sheet was discovered intact in the Fall of 1985 in Massachusetts. It made its way to the Grand Central Show in New York that Fall and it was cut into pairs and singles in Memphis in June of 1986. The notes were divided up by the active Fractional collectors in attendance at that show. Many of the notes from the edge of the sheet had tears and folds but the internal notes were perfect. This Proof is from the completed plate of the Fourth Issue Ten Cent lacking only the seal. It has a razor-sharp print quality that is never seen on Regular Issue notes." Carmine's note is from the top of the sheet, and it exhibits some folds as well as a small edge tear. As with all, the print quality is incredible.
