$1 1928 United States Note or Legal Tender
the only small size red seal issued by the BEP in a one dollar denomination!
The iconic Fr. 1500—a catalog number so well known that the mere mention of
“Fr. 1500” immediately conjures a mental image.
ONE YEAR TYPE NOTE
This note was printed for a two-month period during April and May of 1933. However, the United States released them into Puerto Rico during the recession of 1948-1949 to avoid confusion on the mainland. The Treasury Department feared the banks would have difficulty sorting them so they decided to isolate these pieces. Remarkably, they made their way back to the mainland and are now a sought-after collectible item.
The reverse of this note has a “funny back” that is also found on the $1 1928 and 1934 Silver Certificates.
Most examples of the Fr. 1500 come poorly centered and stars are very difficult to locate.
Don’t settle for the story without the evidence.
a critical component to EVERY collection of United States paper money
please REFER to the SCAN to EVALUATE the CENTERING, EMBOSSING, INKS, ALIGNMENT, etc to formulate an independent opinion as to the quality and suitability of the piece, the use your own impression to decide the amount to bid
