    Rare and Choice Fr. 801 $5 1915 Kansas City FRBN

    Fr. 801 $5 1915 Federal Reserve Bank Note PMG Choice Extremely Fine 45.
    This $5 FRBN is a rarity, and it is the second example we have cataloged in the Coltrane auctions. Chambliss lists this as his #1502, issued prior to the Fr. 800 notes. Tied for second finest on Track & Price with 16 mostly low-grade pieces listed. There is only one extraordinary note known: the PMG Gem Uncirculated 66EPQ which originated from the Tom Flynn Collection. The printed signature at bottom left shows Cross as "Acting" Secretary; Miller's is at the right. This note is just lightly handled and has excellent margins. Mike obtained it in February 1996 when demand was considerably less. Notes such as this presented great "hunting" opportunities for Mike Coltrane and fellow collectors. His PMG Very Fine 20 EPQ note realized $1,560 in the first Coltrane sale. This much finer note should exceed that handily.
    From The Mike Coltrane Collection.
