    Elusive 1875 $1 Legal Tender "Doubled Series Date"

    Fr. 22 $1 1875 Legal Tender PCGS Choice About New 58PPQ.
    From our 2010 FUN auction where it was cataloged, "PCGS has noted, 'Doubled Series Date,' on their holder. This doubling occurs in the series designation at upper left of center. This is one of the most interesting and little-known varieties in United States paper money. We have sold three other Fr. 22's with this same error in the past. This current example is new to the census and all examples that we have handled are closely serial numbered. All examples that we have examined of this error come from plate position "B." Aside from the intriguing error, this is an important note simply as a Fr. 22, as only 23 examples are now known in all grades combined and only four of those notes have grades higher than this example. This is simply a great note on two accounts." The numbers have crept up a bit, but high-end examples remain elusive. In January of 2013, a PMG 64 EPQ note realized $22,325, followed by a PCGS Choice About New 58 example selling for $7,637.50 in September 2013. That latter figure could well be eclipsed here this evening.
