    Fr. 6a $10 New York "for the" Demand Note

    Fr. 6a $10 1861 Demand Note PMG Very Fine 20.
    A truly rare Friedberg number which was last offered in our September, 2008 sale of the Dr. Edward and Joanne Dauer collection, where it was described as follows: "This New York 'for the' $10 Demand Note is previously from the collection of Aubrey Bebee. Only five examples of this note are known--one of which, with no sale history, is listed in the census as Fair. A second example, the Friedberg illustration note, is now permanently impounded in the ANA museum. This solid Very Fine has the important 'for the' words written extremely clearly on both the Register and Treasurer sides of the bill. The colors are terrific and the margins are generous on three sides and close at the bottom. PMG has noted 'Tear', which is all but invisible in the holder. The tear goes about a 1/4 inch into the note towards the right end of the top margin." With the other three examples in private hands quite strongly held, expect bidding to reach the high five figures before the hammer falls this evening.

    Estimate: $75,000 - up.
