EXTREMELY FINE GEM. THIS SUPERB EXAMPLE OF THE PERF 10 DOUBLE-LINE WATERMARKED $1.00 FRANKLIN IS EASILY ONE OF THE FINEST IN EXISTENCE, AND IS GRADED SUPERB 98 BY P.S.E. -- THIS IS THE HIGHEST GRADE AWARDED.

Even though this issue is not particularly rare, collectors who have been searching know the extreme difficulty of obtaining examples with perfect centering and in pristine condition.

With 2009 P.S.E. certificate (Superb 98; SMQ $13,750.00). This is the highest grade awarded and only four others have been awarded this highly desirable grade (this statistic has not changed since 2009)
