    Extremely Rare Fr. 817a $10 Red Stamped Signatures FRBN

    Fr. 817a $10 1915 Federal Reserve Bank Note PMG Very Fine 20.
    Kansas City $10 FRBN attributions are technically challenging, and some of the literature conflicts with certification services data. Both Friedberg and Track & Price define Fr. 817a as having red stamped signatures (of Cross as "Acting" and Miller) combined with Teehee-Burke treasury signatures, and report 13 notes. This example is not among them, nor is it listed on any of the other Fr. 817 variant census types. Despite conflicting attributions seen researching prior offerings, observations by specialists clearly indicate these red-stamped notes are extremely rare. Our most recent offering was in our 2018 Long Beach sale when we sold a PCGS Extremely Fine 40 for $13,200. This note will likely not command that level, but is pleasing for the assigned grade. The red signatures are partially blurry, as you might expect on a circulated note. However, this is another rarity Mike acquired long ago, and it is cataloged in detail for the first time. An excellent opportunity to obtain a rarity, particularly for the specialist.
    From The Mike Coltrane Collection.
