Fr. 335. 1891 $50 Silver Certificate. PMG Very Fine 30.

This newly discovered example is now the lowest serial number recorded in either census, and is now only one of two notes with a four digit serial for this Friedberg number. The other example, K7845, hasn’t been seen since selling in a 1991 auction. The Parker and Burke signatures are the last combination from the last issue of large size $50 Silvers. Edward Everett is depicted at right, and while he was a long time public servant, he is probably best known as the orator that spoke for over two hours prior to President Lincoln, who then gave a two minute speech known today as the Gettysburg Address during the dedication of that hallowed ground. As a Massachusetts Whig, Everett served in the US Congress in both chambers, as Governor of Massachusetts, and upon the death of his friend Daniel Webster in 1852, was appointed Secretary of State for President Fillmore. Everett was actually succeeded as Secretary of State by one William L. Marcy, who is depicted on the extremely rare $1,000 Silver Certificates. This is a perfect mid-grade example with the bonus of the lowest known serial.
