    Beautiful $1000 Silver Certificate Proof

    Fr. 346e Hessler 1411 $1000 1891 Silver Certificate Proof Choice About New. This is a beautiful face-design-only proof that was printed on India paper. The portrait at left is of Liberty, who bears a striking resemblance to actress Josie Mansfield, the paramour of robber baron and patron of the arts, "Jubilee Jim" Fisk or if you like, the "Barnum of Wall Street", who was murdered by another one of Ms. Mansfield's suitors, Ned Stokes, in 1872. The portrait at right is of William L. Marcy, life-long politician, with stops as governor of New York, 1833-1839; United States Secretary of War, 1845-1849; and United States Secretary of State, 1853-1857. He died on July 4, 1857. The actual proof surface is flawless, while the oversized margins display corner folds and other collector handling from admiring viewers. Also, the back upper right-hand corner displays a pencilled "(9)." There are only two notes of this design known, one note is in the Smithsonian, and the other note is in private hands, being ex-Amon Carter. This is an exciting opportunity, and probably the only chance to collect this Friedberg number.
