    Unique Serial Number 1 Fr. 1171

    Fr. 1171 $10 1907 Gold Certificate Choice New. This serial number one note has been off the market since it was last seen as lot 754 in the Barney Bluestone offering of the Grinnell Collection in 1945, where it brought the whopping sum of $35. Malcolm Trask's investment six decades ago proved lucrative, as today these serial number one notes are considered the ultimate type notes and have been driven higher in value by increased demand and limited supply. This is the only serial number one example for the number, since only the E block was used to print the 21,000,000 notes that were issued. The note is essentially perfect save for one tiny corner tip bend, with bold colors, deep original embossing, and all the look and feel of a Gem.
