    Fr. 8 $10 1861 Demand Note PMG Very Fine 30 Net. This is the third time we have handled this lovely $10 Demand Note. The first time was in January, 1997 with the Jerry Sternberg Collection and the second time was at our September 2000 auction. There are around 40 of these known today with the present note one of the highest graded in private hands. The highest graded note of this Friedberg number is a part of the permanent ANA Collection and therefore off limits to collectors. The current note also once set a record price for this Friedberg number in 2004 with a $16,675 winning bid. Tonight we will expect it to rival or even surpass that number as quality and rarity intersect with this note. The third-party label mentions restoration, but it does not discuss how minor this is, as a few small spots have been deftly repaired around the edges. Nevertheless, this is and always will remain an attractive note.
