    Unique Washington $2 Silver Pair

    Fr. 256 $2 1899 Silver Certificates Serial Numbers M99999999 and M100000000 Gem New. We have sold these notes separately in the past, but never together. The M99999999 note we sold in our first auction in November 1990 and the M100000000 note we sold in October 1998. This numbering situation arises from the numbering machinery only able to go up to eight digits plus the prefix letter and printer's embellishment mark. Therefore, the 100,000,000th note must be accomplished by hand on the bottom "D" note of the final sheet for the block. This is the only set of its kind for Washington Deuces, and it is also only one of ten Large Size pairs that demonstrate this numbering phenomena. Both notes in this pair from the New England Changeover Collection are still fresh, beautiful, strictly original, and without flaw. This is a fantastic opportunity that is seldom repeated during a collecting lifetime.
    (Total: 2 notes)
