The rarity, which is being offered on Aug. 15 as part Stack’s Bowers Galleries Official Auction of the ANA World’s Fair of Money. Aug. 9-18, is graded PCGS Fine 15 Apparent. It was discovered in 1966 in an old jar in an oat bin on a farmstead in Missouri, according to Peter Treglia of Stack’s Bowers. The jar contained $40,000 in face value and included this rarity, which last sold in 2005 for just under $750,000. “This note is unique as it bears the March 10th 1862 date – the other two [known] are dated 1863,” said Treglia. “The overall appearance is quite nice and better than one would expect after learning about its 90-year storage in a jar in an oat bin.”

The sale also features more than 80 large-size Silver Certificates, described as the finest collection ever assembled. Details of this transaction were featured in the July issue of Bank Note Reporter.
