PCGS are the only two TRUE independent
currency-grading services available. I highly
recommend these two companies for those of you who
want to get their currency certified and graded for
insurance purposes or simply, a peace of mind.
Fr.-1930* 2003 $1 New York (Solid serial # Star) PCGS-67PPQ Serial # B11111111*
THE "KING OF ALL SOLID SERIAL NUMBERED STARS". This 2003A $1 FRN is one of only three solid serial numbered stars. I do believe the others are solid twos. I chased this particular note for over 4 years until I finally landed it at a fall Baltimore show from a gentleman who owned it with his cousin. He finally sold it to me when I made him an offer he couldnt refuse. This very note sold for $23,000 in a past auction. It has been in the Jhon E Cash private collection since then. It is now being offered to the fancy Serial Numbers collectors market.
This rare note is not for the timid collector but it is destined for the serious advanced collector who desires a real star note rarity. Afterall...there are only 4 known. How I wish this was a coin so I could add a zero or two to the selling price.
