    Lone Finest Graded $10 Demand Note

    Fr. 6 $10 1861 Demand Note PCGS Very Fine 35.
    Demand Notes were important financial instruments in financing the Union's Civil War budget. A shortage of coinage during war time put further strains on circulating paper currency, and these notes circulated heavily until Legal Tenders could help alleviate currency needs. As a result, few Demand Notes are known in grades above Very Fine, most of them $5s. Surprisingly, this note hails as the lone highest graded $10 for all ten of the catalog numbers that comprise the $10 Demand Note run in Friedberg. The notes is surprisingly bright and attractive. The paper is problem free with perfectly penned signatures and a bold green back. Any estimate here is a guess as we have seen nothing that could compete with the grade and originality offered at auction.

    Estimate: $35,000 - up.
