Ultra-Rare 1929 $10 Dallas Replacement from the Gary Burhop Collection of Federal Reserve Bank Notes

Our August CCO auction will feature The Gary Burhop
Collection of 1929 Federal Reserve Bank Notes, which consists of 102 FRBN’s
from various districts and denominations, including replacement notes, and
features quite a few treasures. We previously offered the Gary L. Burhop Type
Coins of Canada in our Bowers and Merena sale of 1996; at the time this was
considered the finest and most complete collection of Canadian type coins ever
assembled. Mr. Burhop has collected coins and currency for 60+ years and is a
life member of the American Numismatic Association, along with other numismatic
groups. Gary has been an active bidder with various auction houses since 1973
and an active trader since 1974, participating in various local and regional
shows often attending six or more shows a year. He has held various numismatic
related jobs, such as being appointed chairman of The Tennessee State Quarter
Commission to select the design for the 2002 dated twenty-five cent coin
honoring that state. He also served as the Tennessee State Editor of the
reference on circulating banknotes of the 1830s-post Civil War titled Obsolete
Paper Money, Volume 7 – Southern States from Whitman Publishing (2016). We
are proud to offer Gary’s notes in our upcoming sale – the second finest
assembled registered set of PMG FRBN’s.

One treasure from Gary’s collection is a Fr. 1860-K* 1929 Federal
Reserve Bank Star Note from the Dallas district graded Very Fine 20 by PMG.
This note is historically important as just four replacements are known for the
Friedberg number according to Track and Price’s census. Replacement notes have
always been sought by small size collectors, especially from the Dallas
district. According to the Standard Guide to U.S. Small Size Paper Money
by John Schwarz and Scott Lindquist, Dallas is tied with just one other
district (Chicago) as being the lowest issuer of replacement notes for the 1929
$10 FRBN series. Dallas issued just 12,000 replacements, and as of 2021 four
are reported to have surfaced. The Burhop example offers dark brown overprints
while the primary design displays still attractive black ink. The design of the
Treasury Building on the reverse faces up well in forest green ink. Mostly even
wear and circulation are noticed. The last time we offered a $10 Dallas Star
was in our November 2017 Baltimore auction, and that example realized $14,400.

PMG Pop 1/1 Finer.
