    'for the' New York Ten Dollar Demand Note the Finest Graded of Only Five Known

    Fr. 6a $10 1861 Demand Note PMG Very Fine 20.
    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. The last time this note changed hands was in September of 2008 as part of our Dr. Edward & Joanne Dauer Collection of Demand Notes. At that time, it realized $54,625. The census has not changed since 2008 and this note remains the finest graded by either service.
