    Bright and Attractive Boston $10,000 FRN

    Fr. 2231-A $10,000 1934 Federal Reserve Note. PMG About Uncirculated 55.
    Unlike the New York district $10,000's which appear frequently as a result of the Binion hoard, Series 1934 Boston $10,000's appear at auction far less often, with just three other notes being offered in the last five years. The last was a PMG 64 note that brought $216,000 last year. Full margins frame this well printed example and the light green overprint is vivid and perfectly backed by the creamy and attractive paper. A minor repair is noted by the grading service, but this is not uncommon on $5,000's and $10,000's, where the vast majority of examples have seen some level of improvement. Consistent prices in the six figure range for About Uncirculated examples (as attested to by the PMG About Uncirculated 55 examples we sold three years ago for $129,500 and $141,000) are indicative of the allure that the high denomination trophy notes carry in the numismatic community.
