Unique K-A Block Fr. 37a Transposed SignaturesFr. 37a $1 1917 Legal Tender PMG About Uncirculated 50.
Not only does this pretty note represent the scarce Fr. 37a number, which is the transposed signature variety where the Burke signature appears on the left and the Elliott signature on the right, it is also the sole example of this variety reported from the K-A block. All of the other 118 known pieces of this variety are from the H-A block. Paper money dealer Tom Denly turned up this specimen in 1987 and it subsequently ended up in the Doug Murray Collection. A very small quantity of $1 Legal sheets with the transposed signatures had been set aside by the BEP and were finally used during the printing of the K-A block resulting in this rarity. It is a pleasing, well inked example that has sustained only light circulation and will certainly be of great interest to large size type specialists. The Track & Price Census list two K-A block serial numbers for this Friedberg number. We had T&P review their reported notes and the Fr. 37a in question is actually a Fr. 37. The next version release of T&P will contain this correction.
Estimate: $1,500 - up.
