    Newly Discovered Serial Number 6 Fr. 317

    Fr. 317 $20 1891 Silver Certificate Very Choice New. A Gem if the back centering were just a bit more toward the bottom. This Serial Number E6 1891 Silver is a new note to the Census. Four other low numbers are known: the Serial Number 1 note, which we sold for a bit over $40,000 last year, the Serial Number 3 note, which is permanently impounded in the Smithsonian Institution, the Number 5 note, which has been off the market since it was handled by Abe Kosoff in 1955, and the Number 8 note, which Lyn Knight auctioned last October for $23,000. This piece gives the appearance of a Superb Gem when viewed from the face, and a fully Choice example from the back. With the current demand for low-number rare notes, we would not be at all surprised to see this piece reach or surpass the number its sheet-mate Serial Number E8 realized last Fall.
