    The Finest Fr. 6 Demand Note to Ever Reach Public Auction

    Fr. 6 $10 1861 Demand Note PMG Very Fine 30.
    When we last auctioned this note in January 2008, it was the highest graded example to cross the auction block. Ten years later, it has reappeared, and still holds the number one spot for the finest note auctioned. This is not surprising, as there is only a single note at either service graded above Very Fine 30. Both hand-signed signatures are strong, and the note is near perfect except for a slight tear along the top margin as mentioned on the PMG holder. The colors are incredible and the note is far better margined than most Demand Notes. This should easily surpass its decade-old realization.
