    Description

    Fr. 229a $1 1899 Silver Certificate PMG Extremely Fine 40 EPQ.
    A lovely example of this very scarce Black Eagle Friedberg number that is from a small late print run of Vernon-McClung notes that took place in 1911. While the official high serial number for Fr. 229/229a notes is Y51504000, this piece, and the following lot, are from a later print run of serials Y68412001 to Y68992000. So far, only six Fr. 229a specimens from the late print run have been confirmed to exist, including this piece. Strong embossing remains and the inks are quite fresh as well on this pleasing note that will certainly appeal to the large size specialists.


    Estimate: $900 - up.
