    Fr. 1186 $20 1906 Gold Star Certificate Fine. The long-running Murray census documents only one Star for this Friedberg number. The listed Star has stood alone for almost 15 years, and now, a second serial number has surfaced. This is the higher serial number of the pair, and like its Friedberg number sibling, falls into the Face Plate 1 category with face plate 154. The edges show some abrasions, a couple of pinholes are within the portrait, and a rubber-stamped number "13935" is found on the back. However, rarity far outstrips these minor handicaps. Where can another be obtained at any price? The Murray reference is the bible for Large Size Star denizens and can be obtained separately. It's full title is The Comprehensive Catalog of United States Large Size Star Notes from 1910 - 1929. Large Size Mule notes are also discussed in detail between its covers. We have a few autographed copies by Mr. Murray himself of the latest edition, and a copy can be obtained for $25 postpaid with a check made out to Currency Auctions of America. The address is Heritage Currency Auctions of America, c/o Danita Johnston, 3500 Maple Ave, 17th Floor, Dallas, TX 75219-3941.
