    Previously Unreported Fractional Rarity

    Fr. 1253 10c Third Issue PMG Choice Uncirculated 64. Unlike any other Ten Cent Third Issue hand-signed note, this piece has "Register of the Treasury" handwritten under Colby's name, rather than the usual "Register." And "Treasurer of the U.S." is written under Spinner's signature rather than the usual "Treasurer." This piece is one of only two that we are aware of. Both were in the Ford Collection, and both slipped by as ordinary notes. This is the first to resell, and it will likely attract considerable specialist attention. It's a difficult piece to estimate, but it is certainly extraordinarily rare and very likely one of only two to exist. PMG has noted the variety on their holder. The second piece from the Ford Collection has also been graded, and it now resides in a PMG 58 holder, making this 64 the finest known.
