    Extremely Rare Choice Uncirculated 1928E $2 Star

    Fr. 1506* $2 1928E Legal Tender Note. PCGS Choice New 63PPQ.
    This note comes from a small group of five uncirculated 1928E $2 star notes unearthed by Boston dealer Tom Denly about fifteen years ago. All were crackling fresh original examples differentiated from each other only by the vagaries of centering for each piece. This is the third one of the group we have sold over the years, one in the Taylor Family collection in February of 2005, one in the Flynn collection in April of 2008, and the example offered here today. Prices have steadily escalated, with the Taylor Family specimen fetching $11,500, and the Flynn note, which graded PMG 64, $28,750. This piece is to our eye every bit the equal of the Flynn example, and we would not be at all surprised to see a realization for this very special note equal to or even exceeding the number reached two years ago.
    From the Rocky Manning Collection
