This is the first time an instrument of this sort has been offered publically at auction. We think there will be serious interest in this amazing piece of U.S. Financial and Presidential history.

The second session scheduled for Tuesday, October 22nd at our offices in Fort Lee, New Jersey includes U.S. & Worldwide banknotes; Security Printing Ephemera; Confederate Banknotes & Bonds; Historic ephemera including a fresh estate “Wells Fargo” collection put together over a century ago with many rare Wells Fargo documents, Broadsides, Exchanges and Fiscal paper that have never been offered at auction. The Worldwide Banknote section is highlighted by a U.A.E. Specimen set of 5 notes; a China, Hupeh Government Cash Bank, 1904 rarity; Mexico is represented by a significant selection of rarities seldom seen at auction including high denomination proofs from the Banco period as well as an interesting selection of Bono De Caja Specimens with a discovery note that is unlisted. The U.S. section offers Colonial banknotes; Obsolete banknotes; Fractional Currency; Large & Small Type including an 1896 Educational banknote set of $1, $2 and $5 in high grade and dozens of other desirable notes. The sale is rounded out with an offering of Penn Central stock certificates that had been selected for a reference collection as well as Security Printing Ephemera and stocks and bonds.
We are looking forward to another exciting auction and hope you enjoy our current offerings. Our next live auction is scheduled for late January to early February, 2014 at our offices in Fort Lee, New Jersey. If you have suitable material, we are still seeking consignments for our upcoming 2014 auctions.
