    Extremely Rare Fr. 1015a - One of Seven Known

    Fr. 1015a $50 1914 Red Seal Federal Reserve Note PMG Choice Extremely Fine 45.
    This is a high grade example of an extremely rare Friedberg number. Just seven specimens are listed in the current Track & Price census, most of which are considerably lower grade and several of which have severe problems. In fact, in all of our sales we have had only one Fr. 1015a to offer, and that piece was flawed, with pinholes and an edge tear. This number was missing from even the massive Tom Flynn holdings which we sold back in 2008. This piece, which has been part of the Coral Gables Collection for decades, is one of only two graded higher than VF 35 by PMG, with the other only five points higher than this piece. If rarity, grade, and desirability are any guide, our estimate might well prove conservative in the extreme.
