    King of $1 Silver Certificates 1928E Replacement Note

    Fr. 1605* $1 1928E Silver Certificate. PMG Choice About Unc 58 EPQ.
    From our FUN 2018 auction where it was described, "The 1928E has long been referred to as the 'King of the $1 Silvers,' and the 1928E star has been recognized as the 'King of the $1 Silver Certificate Stars.' Fewer than ten examples likely exist in all grades combined, with the Track & Price census listing only five. In a dozen years PCGS has graded only two, a Fine 15 and a Very Fine 30, whilst PMG has graded three, a Very Fine 25, an About Uncirculated 58, and the lone Gem Uncirculated 65 example we offered last April. This note is one centerfold away from a far higher grade, as the originality here is so pronounced that PMG has also commented 'Great Embossing' as well as 'Exceptional Paper Quality.' We will be very conservative in our estimate here, and let our bidders decide on the value of this trophy item." It appeared to be a bargain that evening given the true rarity of original, high grade 28E $1 Silver Certificate star notes.
