This note is a Federal Reserve Bank note, not national currency or a national bank note. Circumstances of their circulation in 1932-33 caused them to be overprinted on unserialed national note sheet stock, hence the similarity, but the mechanics of their issue were completely different.


There exist numerous private censi on FRBNs, much more reliable than TPG population reports. You can get more information from members of the PCGS boards.


I do agree that you should stay clear of problem notes.

The 2007 version of Jhon E Cash Census states 18 known. If you supply the serial number, I will let you know if it is this census or not, and if so the grade noted.
