    Chicago $500 Star

    Fr. 2202-G* $500 1934A Federal Reserve Note. PMG Choice Very Fine 35.
    The census of high denomination stars indicates five examples are known from Chicago. Overall, Series 1934A $500 Stars are much scarcer than Series 1934. Take for instance Chicago, which is nearly five times more common for Series 1934. This piece was previously offered as part of the Taylor Family Collection in 2005 where it realized $2,990 against an estimate of $1,750 to $2,250. No other examples have been offered at public auction since that appearance. At the time we graded this piece VF-EF and with good reason, it is a high end Very Fine with great color and vibrant paper.
