    High-Grade Fr. 779 $2 San Francisco "Battleship" Note

    Fr. 779 $2 1918 Federal Reserve Bank Note PMG Choice About Unc 58 EPQ.
    A scarce and high-grade $2 San Francisco FRBN with the Elliott-Burke and Clerk-Calkins signatures. Track & Price currently lists 65 examples for this Friedberg number, including three notes reported in this serial range, and few are strictly Uncirculated. They are infrequently offered in high grades. Mike bought this piece 30 years ago for a sum which will be a bargain compared to its upcoming realization. With the exception of faint handling, this note is essentially Choice to Gem as made. Both sides show superb centering and striking colors. Conditionally rare and one of the finest known.
    From The Mike Coltrane Collection.
