A Series 1934 $10,000 Federal Reserve note sold for $122,850, including the buyer's premium, on Feb. 28 in a Manifest Auctions sale.
The note, graded by PCGS Currency as Very Choice New 64, Apparent, with minor restorations on back, was once part of the Binion Horseshoe One Million Dollar display at Binion’s Casino in Las Vegas, Nev. The note had a pre-sale estimate of $120,000 to $180,000.
Also sold during the auction was a four-subject uncut sheet of three Series 1882 brown back $10 and one $20 national bank notes for The Lufkin National Bank (Lufkin, Texas), for $25,740 against a pre-sale estimate of $20,000 to $30,000. (All prices realized quoted here include the buyer’s premium.)
According to the catalog description, the sheet is “the second uncut sheet of brown backs known for the state and makes just 42 for the entire country. That total is for brown back sheets in general, not for $10, $10, $10, $20 sheets, which are far scarcer.”
The sheet was graded by the firm as Very Fine-Extremely Fine and has a few folds.
