    Original Pack of 1928 Legal Tender Aces

    Fr. 1500 $1 1928 Legal Tender Notes. Original Pack of 100. Choice Crisp Uncirculated to Gem Crisp Uncirculated.
    This pack's history is short and easily tracked right back to the shores of Puerto Rico. Although dated 1928, small size Legal Tender Aces were printed in 1933, with the first 5000 notes being released at that time. The remainder of the issue was released in Puerto Rico between 1948 and 1949. It is interesting to note, however, there is a penciled notation of 5-3-33 on the original band around this group of notes. Our consignor's mother received this pack directly from a bank in Puerto Rico where she still resides. When he was a young boy, his mother gave him a single note which he kept, in pristine condition. It was reunited with the pack to complete the run of 100 notes. This is only the second original pack that we have ever handled. The other was long prior to the Currency Auctions of America and Heritage merger in 2001. The notes fit perfectly together with a crackling fresh and original wave expected with an original pack of notes printed during this time period. The notes were perfectly cared for and differ in grade based on margin size alone.
