    First Time Offering As A Pair

    Fr. 233 $1 1899 Silver Certificates Serial Numbers B99999999A and B100000000A Choice New. All Large Size United States paper money had serial numbers consisting of up to eight numerical digits, plus prefix and suffix letters. When the 99,999,999th note in a given block was reached, the last note on the sheet received the hand-set, nine-digit serial number 100,000,000. This historic pair shows this numbering pattern, with the B100000000A serial number slightly shifted due to hand-numbering. Interestingly, this is the first time this pair has been auctioned together. The B99999999A note was in a NASCA auction in 1980 by itself. It then would re-emerge on a 1998 fixed price list. Since then it has been reunited with its nine-digit sheet mate that is not documented in the census. In fact, before this reunion, there were only ten such Large Size pairs in the census. These offerings are far and few between, therefore this exciting lot provided by the New England Changeover Collection should provide plenty of fireworks.
