This is the LAZY DEUCE... A design so firmly entrenched in the minds of the collecting community that the mere mention of the name immediately conjures a vivid mental image. Originating from the TRADESMENS National Bank of the CITY of NEW YORK (NY), which was assigned Charter 905, from the Series of 1875.
The issuing location of this museum-worthy piece is unimportant, as it's appeal is universal. A CLASSIC PIECE, in all regards...Now of EPIC PROPORTIONS as a SERIAL NUMBER ONE. There are SEVEN SERIAL NUMBER ONE LAZY DUECES from the ENTIRE COUNTRY for the SERIES 1875 , making this the pinnacle trophy to enter the ultimate collection. No matter one's particular focus of collecting, this deserves a spot in the cabinet of the person blessed with both the resources and knowledge to acquire it. Exceptional impression with vibrant red overprints, including the SERIAL NUMBER "1", standing majestically alone above the Treasury seal. The signatures remain bold and the swath of blue anti-counterfeiting stain, applied at the Bureau of Engraving and Printing, wonderfully accents this historic banknote. Owned previously by numismatic luminaries. It's provenance represents a virtual "who's who" among famous collectors.
It has traded hands only three times in 55 years, indicative of the importance ascribed to it. What visionary will become the next custodian? PCGS has included the pedigree on the holder.
