    High-Grade Fr. 788 $5 1915 Atlanta FRBN

    Fr. 788 $5 1915 Federal Reserve Bank Note PMG About Uncirculated 50.
    Most 1915 $5, $10, and $20 FRBNs differ greatly from the 1918 notes due to lack of engraved bank office signatures. Because of this, there are signature types of varieties that are potentially undiscovered and perhaps will require new Friedberg numbers. This is a high-grade example of a difficult-to-find 1915 $5 Atlanta FRBN. It is a rarely encountered note with spaces left for stamped bank-officer signatures; they are not engraved on the plate as was done in 1918. The Bell and Wellborn black ink-stamped signatures are visible on this note (though the first is obscured by the serial number). Track & Price enumerates only 18 in all grades with none Uncirculated. Remarkably, Mike owned three examples in that census including two of the finest. Attractive overall with only light handling. Not quite as bold as Mike's PMG About Uncirculated 53 EPQ we sold in the first Coltrane sale for $2,880. Another opportunity presents itself for a note Mike acquired in 1999.
    From The Mike Coltrane Collection.
