    Serial Number 12 1928 $1000 St. Louis District Star Note

    Fr. 2210-H* $1,000 1928 Federal Reserve Note. Serial Number Twelve. PCGS Extremely Fine 45PPQ.
    Serial number number 12 graces this very attractive 1928 $1000 St. Louis star note. The margins are Gem sized and the paper is as bright as one will find for any Extremely Fine graded piece. Full paper wave and unmistakable embossing is also seen through the PCGS holder. Current census numbers put the number of 1928 $1000 Star Notes at around fifteen from all twelve districts combined. To date, about a half dozen pieces have been graded by either PMG or PCGS. Over two years ago, a stunning New York district note was discovered and ultimately graded PCGS Choice New 63PPQ. At auction in January 2013, it realized more than $76,000, indicating grade is worth a significant premium for 1928 $1000 Star Notes. This example is the second finest known and by a wide margin. In terms of eye appeal, it is far closer to the Choice New example than to the Extremely Fine grade it received. It is a truly stunning and wholly original piece, and worthy of a place in any advanced collection.
