Galleries is offering a remarkable Fr.964 1914 Federal Reserve Note $20/$10
Double Denomination Error in their November 2020 United States Currency auction
This example is the A position note of a cut sheet of four 1914 Burke-McAdoo
signed FRNs from the Boston district seen with a $20 face impression and $10
back. The four notes can be traced back to the fabled collection of Albert A.
Grinnell and were offered as lot 4831 of Barney Bluestone's June 1946 sale
where they realized an incredible $3,550! By comparison Grinnell's Fr.379b 1890
$1000 Grand Watermelon sold for $1,230 in November 1944.
All four examples are recorded as About
Uncirculated, a fact confirmed by PMG's assigned grade. This example displays
four boardwalk margins on both the face and back. The paper is bright, creamy
white in color and displays only light handling. The plate impressions are
darkly inked and vividly detailed while the deep blue overprint is boldly presented
on the face. It has been more than 15 years since this note was offered
publicly. We are certain collectors will be thrilled at the chance to secure
this incredible large size currency error when it crosses the auction block on
November 12, 2020.
