Battle of the Bank Notes 2: USARare.com’s $50 Star Number One FRN vs. Jhon E. Cash’s $5 Star Number One FRN

We’re back with another “Battle of the Bank Notes”.

Today we feature another selection from the Jhon E. Cash collection, plus a heavy hitter from the USARare.com website, which offers a stunning selection of US currency, both Large Size and Small Size.

Let’s have a look at two very rare Star Number One Notes, both of which are for sale:

Here’s Cash’s Note:

This show-stopper from the Jhon E. Cash collection is unique. Cash can find no other example of a $5 FRN Star Number One note being offered in any major online auction, or for sale by another dealer. The grade appears to be a conservative PMG 58 Choice About Uncirculated, with generous margins and the “Exceptional Paper Quality” designation.

Asking price: $44,500 USD

Notes:  Unique for all $5 Federal Reserve Notes.

Next, here’s USARare.com’s Note:

The team at USARare.com holds this note in high regard, and rightly so. It is only 1 of 2 recorded $50 Star Number One notes available to the collecting community. The other note grades VF at best, while this specimen brings the house down with a solid PCGS 67 Superb Gem Uncirculated grade. The note has amazing margins, and excellent embossing.

Asking price: $40,000 USD

Notes: A nice rarity from recent times. It’s hard to find anything from the 2001 series that is this unique.

Battle of the Bank Notes 1: Jhon E. Cash’s $500 Star Number 1 vs. Mike Abramson’s Serial 1 $100 United States Notes

Welcome to PaperMoneyAuction.com. Our website is still in pre-launch mode at the moment, because we’re testing some new features and optimizing website navigation.

We’d like to introduce you to our regular series “Battle of the Bank Notes”. Today’s edition features Jhon E. Cash’s 1934 $500 Federal Reserve Note Star Number 1 from Kansas City against Mike Abramson’s 1966 $100 United States Note Number 1, a piece which formerly belonged to Amon Carter, United States paper money collecting royalty.

Here’s Cash’s Note:

Cash considers this note the “Holy Grail” of all small size US currency. He purchased it in 2001 from an estate sale brokered by another currency dealer.  It is a 100% original note with a solid grade from PMG of 58 Choice About Uncirculated. Only a slight corner tip fold keeps it out of the Gem designation.

Asking price: $325,000 USD

Notes:  Cash writes he most likely will not sell it, despite receiving many strong offers.

Next, here’s Abramson’s Note:

Abramson considers this note “the single most coveted piece of small size U. S. paper money”. Although not a star note, it still bears an impressive serial number 1 identification. The note has belonged to several noteworthy US currency collectors, including Amon Carter, Jack Fisher and John Whitney Walter (recent previous owner). Given this elite pedigree, extreme rarity, and almost impossible-to-find #1 serial, it’s not a  surprise that Abramson considers this note “The King of Small Size Currency”.

Asking price: $495,000 USD

Notes: This note is Raw, graded Choice Uncirculated to Gem Uncirculated.
