Nice addition coinfun31. One of the last LT's printed.

Deep down in someone's basement is a printing press, Mylar holders, a heat sealing machine and a seemingly endless supply of Perfect notes. Almost every note encapsulated by the Currency Evaluation Company (CEC) is a perfect 70. I've seen these on eBay for years and get a chuckle every time I see one. I finally decided to buy one just to say I have one. The holder is thinner and slightly smaller than top tier holders but its distinct bright yellow label is hard to miss. In all actuality, this note is most likely a 65 or 66 note but for now it's my perfect $1 FRN. Don't try this at home kids.

Steve - I've seen these as well. Is the company still around, or when do these holders date to?

SC - Nice fractional. Gotta love that Spinner sig!

I had an old 1934 FRN $10 in one of those CEC holders. Sold it to someone, they sent it for grading, and it came back from PMG a 65 epq. So not too bad, but definitely not a 70.

Latest addition to the Large Type Set. This is FR-30, bearing the Bruce/Wyman sig combo, and would have been printed between mid-1883 and mid-1885. Fairly common note, but less so in high grades as expected.

Super nice Mr.Frog.
I used to call this a red seal but online descriptions call it brown.

When a series ends, I look for printing anomaly's of short print runs for regular circulating notes. The 2013 $1 FRN's have a few and one of them is the Chicago G-I block. Only 12.8M were printed so I set out to find one. After almost a year, I located one. From a forum member over at PMF, this arrived today.

Are there stars for this block? Assuming not.

As you know, my scanner washes out colors without fussing around each time, which isn't worth it. The seal on this version is certainly closer to brown than red, and in hand is fairly rich. Outside of the Rainbow, this is my favorite Large USN Ace.

Yes, 2013 $1 Chicago star notes had 3 runs totaling over 10M notes.
