    Rare Fr. 1020a

    Fr. 1020a $50 1914 Red Seal Federal Reserve Note PMG Choice Fine 15.
    A rare Friedberg number with an enumeration of a mere six in the census. This figure has not increased any in the last decade, while many Friedberg numbers have had their populations increase during the same time period. A closer look reveals that the real number of examples that are available for collectors is even lower as one piece resides within the Smithsonian Institution. Our recent experience with Fr. 1020a shows that we sold a PMG VF 25 example for $15,862.50 in April 2013. With that in mind, be prepared to spend five figures on this note if you are serious.
