August CCO Auction to Feature Rare 1929 $50 Kansas City Replacement from the Gary Burhop Collection of Federal Reserve Bank Notes

​Our August 2021 CCO auction, scheduled to close on August 31, will feature The Gary Burhop Collection of 1929 Federal Reserve Bank Notes. This cabinet consists of 102 Federal Reserve Bank Notes from various districts and denominations, including replacement notes and quite a few treasures. We previously offered the Gary L. Burhop Type Coins of Canada in our Bowers and Merena sale of 1996, which at the time was considered the finest and most complete collection of Canadian type coins ever assembled. Mr. Burhop has collected coins and currency for over 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 featured in our August CCO auction is a Fr. 1880-J* 1929 $50 Federal Reserve Bank Star Note from the Kansas City district which is graded Extremely Fine 40 by PMG. This replacement note offers good color and eye appeal. Only 12,000 Kansas City Stars were printed, and this note is likely missing from many small size or replacement collections. This mid-grade example is free of problems, and any collector would be proud to own it. PMG Pop 1/6 finer.
