    Exceedingly Rare Fr. 830 $20 1915 Dallas FRBN
    A Key Rarity in the Entire Series

    Fr. 830 $20 1915 Federal Reserve Bank Note PMG Very Fine 20.
    Friedberg 830 is among the Federal large size type notes that only appear in comprehensive, carefully crafted collections like Mike Coltrane's or by the serendipity of discovery. In this case, it is a combination of both criteria. Only 8,000 of these rare notes were printed, and Mike's example has the lowest serial number in the census. This Friedberg number saw the final usage of the face design with Grover Cleveland and the back vignette of Marcus Baldwin's Land, Sea, and Air vignette (which includes the first depiction of an airplane on a bank note. The engraved treasury pairing of Teehee and Burke is combined with the black ink-stamped Talley and Van Zandt signatures; "Secretary" is blacked out, and "Cashier" is stamped under Talley. Currently, there are a mere four notes reported on Track & Price. The bottom margin is quite close, but this note has much remaining paper body and color. Ex: Lyn Knight, September 2012 sale, lot 1129 (realized $26,450); our 2011 FUN sale, lot 17042 (realized $34,500); Private East Texas Collection. This is a prize note and, most importantly, a key rarity in the entire FRBN series.
    From The Mike Coltrane Collection.
