Our upcoming May 2021 United States Currency Collectors Choice Auction features a nearly uncirculated Fr.121m 1901 $10 Legal Tender Note. Graded Choice About New 58 by PCGS Currency, the note features an imposing American Bison at center lending to this type’s popular Bison Note nickname. Adding to the appeal of these notes are the images of western explorers Lewis and Clark who appear at left and right respectively on the face of the note.

This catalog number features the Elliott-White signature combination, although it displays an Elliott-Burke back plate number making it a mule note as well. Bright paper, bold red overprints and light handling makes it a wonderful example of this all-time favorite design type. The note carries an estimate of $2,500-$3,500. The entire May United States coins and paper money Collectors Choice Online Auction will be posted in early May at StacksBowers.com. The live bidding portion of the May CCO auction will be conducted on May 19th.
