    Key $10 1933 Certificate

    Fr. 1700 $10 1933 Silver Certificate. PMG Choice Very Fine 35.
    The key small size note and at the very top of many want lists. This is a one Friedberg number design as this series and denomination is the only one with the clause that reads, "payable in silver coin to bearer on demand" and its obligation clause printed over the Treasury Seal is also not found on any other note. The example in this lot was part of the February, 1934 release that included serial numbers A00016001A through A00059800A. All of the Series 1933 $10s were released through the Treasury Cash Room in Washington, DC, either directly to the public on a walk in basis or at area banks. The Treasurer's Redemption Division then made a concerted effort to remove them from circulation because the 1934 $10 Silvers were now available and their clause with different wording read, "in silver payable to the bearer on demand." This is a nice example for the grade with light folds. It is a plate letter G piece that has three broad margins, while the bottom edge is just below the frame line. Either tight top or bottom margins are commonly found on Fr. 1700 notes.
