    Fr. 2126-B $50 1996 Federal Reserve Note. PCGS Choice About New 58.
    Fr. 2175-E $100 1996 Federal Reserve Note. PCGS Choice About New 58PPQ.
    A unique set of the highest importance, with each denomination of the New Currency Design Series 1996 represented. The $20 note is pen signed by Robert E. Rubin, Secretary of the Treasury, Mary Ellen Withrow, Treasurer of the United States, Thomas R. Hipschen, the Portrait Engraver for the BEP, Dixie O. March, the Letter/Script Engraver for the BEP, and by V. Jack Ruther, the designer of each of these notes, while the $50 and $100 notes display the same autograph signatures save for that of Ms. March. The Series 1996 "Big Head" notes represented the first serious redesign of United States currency since 1929, and was the culmination of a project that Mr. Ruther had been working on for fifteen years, although the serious redesign work did not commence until 1992. Final approval was given by the Department of the Treasury in 1995, and the first notes appeared in circulation a year later. PCGS correctly indicates that these notes come from the "Banknote Designer Collection," and they represent the only such set ever offered to collectors. For the serious collector of small size currency, they are simply irreplaceable at any price, because when this set is sold, there will be no others.
