    Fr. 251 $2 1899 Silver Certificate Serial Number 1 CGA Gem Uncirculated 65. A broadly margined beauty that is one of only five Serial Number 1's that are known for the ten different Friedberg numbers of Series 1899 Deuces. Of that group, one grades Very Good and has not appeared on the market, another is ensconced in the ANA museum, a third has been off the market since 1977, and the fourth is reported by serial number only as part of a cut sheet. This D1 Fr. 251 may well be the only Serial Number 1 Series 1899 Deuce available to collectors for decades to come. The original embossing of the plate is pronounced enough to be easily seen through the CGA holder. An important opportunity for the serious collector.
