    Bright $1000 1918 Federal Reserve Note

    Fr. 1133-C $1000 1918 Federal Reserve Note PCGS Choice About New 58.
    Two dollar signs under the numbers 1000 flank either side of the heraldic eagle on back. Just 12,800 Series 1918 $1000 notes were printed and issued by the Philadelphia district. This piece comes from a very small run of nice examples that accounts for more than half of the dozen or so surviving examples. The full margins and vivid colors give it a full Gem appearance, which is how it was listed in the census since it was first offered in a 1979 NASCA sale. A survey of the notes from this small run leads to a 2005 offering of an example from the sheet before, the description of which in part captures this note's qualities precisely, "The colors are beautifully bright, and the centering of both sides approaches perfection."
