    Evenly Circulated Serial Number One Friedberg 17a

    Fr. 17a $1 1862 Legal Tender PCGS Fine 15.
    To the best of our knowledge, there are five surviving Serial Number One examples of this Friedberg number. Each time serial number 100,000 was reached during printing, the series number changed (this note bears Series 156) and the numbering began with number one again, allowing for the existence of multiple serial number one notes. The survival rate was extremely low and even though these early Legals were the only notes with multiple number ones of the same Friedberg number, they remain very rare. PCGS has graded this example Fine 15, italicizing the grade and adding the comment, "Small Edge Tears."
