Owner's Description

Part of the Doug Murray Collection. A collector that truly had an eye for top notes. Douglas Murray is one of the great experts in large size notes. He is renowned as the leading expert in U.S. notes dated 1862 and 1863. His research efforts are widely praised, especially in "The Comprehensive Catalog of U.S. Federal Large-Size Notes, 1861-1929 by C.R. Chambliss and Gene Hessler. Every time I see a Murray, Flynn, Donlon, Dauer...etc pedigree notes, I pay special attention since pedigree is part of the fun of note collecting. Owning a piece from these collections and then placing their name on the reverse of the slab as "ex:Doug Murray" and my name on the front is, in my opinion, creating extra value for the note. These pioneers in our understanding of paper money often have a keen eye for eye appeal of notes. So, PEDIGREE your collection! You deserve it. I love the days when I receive a reholdered note with a famous pedigree on the reverse of the slab and my pedigree on the a brand new holder!!! Makes my day. Either rare, GEM, interesting serial honor to own a few of his notes. This is a fine example of that idea.
