    Rare Fr. 343 $100 Monroe Type

    Fr. 343 $100 1891 Silver Certificate PCGS Apparent Very Fine 30.
    Another rare James Monroe-vignetted note, but with some face layout differences compared to Fr. 341 and 342. The portrait has shifted a little to the right, all corners have denomination dies, the seal has moved to center right, and the type faces are different. There are also textual changes, with "deposited with the TREASURER of the U.S. / AT Washington, D.C. / payable at his office to the bearer on demand" altered to "DEPOSITED in the Treasury of the United States ... / Payable to the bearer on demand / Washington, D.C." There are 20 enumerated on the Track & Price census. PCGS cited "Rust Stains Painted Over," and those areas are visible upon viewing on both sides, but the paper is solid and the note vibrant. Mike purchased this privately at the 2011 FUN show. Ex: our 2008 CSNS sale, lot 15192; Thomas M. Flynn Collection. A high-denomination rarity.
    From The Mike Coltrane Collection.
