    Serial Number B6 Fr. 313 - The Lowest of Only 19 Known Examples

    Fr. 313 $20 1886 Silver Certificate PMG Very Fine 30 Net.
    An extremely rare number with only 18 pieces reported in Track & Price for all grades combined. The major grading services have seen 11 pieces, likely with some crossover repeats. A single uncirculated note has been graded with all the others VF to AU. This note which bears serial #B6 will be new to the Track & Price census and the lowest serial number known. A few two digit pieces are in the census, but this is the first single digit example. PMG has assigned a Net grade commenting "Previously Mounted" and they are correct. There are minor scuffs in both upper corners of the back, but they are far from the design and, in this catalogers opinion, meaningless. The note itself is a true beauty, clearly never circulated, as it has not a touch of soil. The 30 grade is accurate due to storage folds but this beautifully margined piece has 100% fully bright inks and paper and magnetic eye-appeal. The beauty and rarity of this note combined with it being the lowest serial number known should make it bring well in excess of the last VF 30 to have auctioned. That note had an ordinary serial number and auctioned in August of 2013 for $25,850. This note should easily exceed that.
