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, with quite a few treasures included in this fantastic offering. We offered the Gary L. Burhop Type Coins of Canada in our Bowers and Merena sale of 1996, which at the time was considered the most complete and finest 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 various numismatic groups. Gary has been an active bidder since 1973 with various auction houses, and an active trader since 1974 participating in local and regional shows often attending six or more shows each year. He has held a number of numismatic-related jobs throughout his life, including being appointed Chairman for The Tennessee State Quarter Commission, gathered to select the design for the 2002 dated twenty-five cent coin honoring that state. He also served as the Tennessee State Editor of Whitman Publishing’s reference on circulating banknotes issued from the 1830s until after the Civil War titled Obsolete Paper Money, Volume 7 – Southern States. We are proud to offer Gary’s notes – the second finest assembled registered set of PMG FRBN’s.
Featured from the collection is lot 90090, a Fr. 1880-L* 1929 $50 Federal Reserve Bank Star Note from the San Francisco. This note has been graded Very Fine 30 by PMG. We expect this rare replacement note to have great appeal for collectors, as the PMG population report shows a total of nine in all grades combined. This note is very appealing for the grade with only light to moderate circulation. It is likely missing from even advanced collections. PMG Pop 1/1 finer.
