    Description

    Fr. 229a $1 1899 Silver Certificate Choice Extremely Fine. A beautifully centered, strictly original example of the scarcest note from the most popular series. Only about 40 examples are known in all grades combined, and most are very tightly held. We've sold only nine in our 37 sales. This piece is absolutely flawless for the grade, with deep, original embossing, perfect paper color and broad, even margins. The note shows no signs whatever of actual circulation, just three storage folds and a broad corner fold. A lovely example of a note that is becoming extremely difficult to acquire.
