    Fr. 1509 $2 1953 Legal Tender Notes. Courtesy Autographed Uncut Sheet of 18. PMG Choice Uncirculated 64 EPQ.
    Serial number 84 is found on the first note of this nicely centered sheet which has been autographed by Treasurer Ivy Baker Priest. It must be remembered that sheets of 18 have the serial numbers advance by 8000 per note vertically down the columns. This is the story often told for the stoppage of uncut sheet sales, "One night the new Secretary of the Treasury George M. Humphrey was having dinner at a Washington, DC restaurant. At a nearby table a man proceeded to pull out an uncut sheet and started to cut notes off of it to pay his bill. Mr. Humphrey was so infuriated by this action that he had sales of uncut sheets stopped." Uncut sheet sales were halted on January 6, 1954.
