    Rare Fr. 202d Face Proof

    Fr. 202d Hessler 1393b $1000 1861 Interest Bearing Note Face Proof Gem New, PC. There are no issued notes for this design known, and in fact Friedberg mentions only one complete proof in existence. We sold that proof as part of the Jim O'Neal Collection in May 2005 for $37,375. This plate letter C face proof is printed on India paper and mounted on card stock. It also has six punch cancels along the signature blocks. For face proofs, the Hessler reference only mentions a single plate A note. This noble proof will surely create a stir in the auction room tonight.
    From the California Proof and Specimen Collection.
