Hey everyone,
Just found this 1928A beauty !  (I've rarely come across such a sweet one - thought I'd share) !

Rather early print (March 1930) and therefore with a deep forest green seal !

Anyone else mad about the dark forest green seal ?

Have a great day !

Great eye appeal and amazing Gem-like centering. 

Thanks for sharing @max7505.

Very nice example! As mentioned the centering is superb. If it is UNC and the registration is decent that note needs to be graded...

That's a beauty!  I recently got one from the 1950 series, very pretty green seal and reverse, too.

Post the back, I'd like to see it.  🙂

Over a thousand of today's dollars, back in 1930 ! Most people probably hadn't ever seen one nor knew Franklin was on it !

Oh, it is actually graded ! 66PPQ by PMG ! And the back is just as nicely centered.
Natural paper ripple and absolutely problem free as far as I am concerned ! 

I'm no expert but I'd have given it an even higher grade !

Nice pickup.  Congrats. Here’s one of mine. Says dark green seal but looks different. Anyway, thanks for sharing.

Great note. 

There were some very cool notes in circulation back in the 1930's and 40's. 

Your BA is from December 24, 1930 so it is safely a DGS.

If it is in an older holder I think you would have a shot at an upgrade if sent in for review...

Looks outstanding although the back is not quite as good as the front but still great!

Here's a crisp new St. Louis issue with nice paper wave, sitting on the grading pile.  Also has the elusive Light Green Seal -

(Ed. - Oops, misread the thread title, this is clearly not a DGS - sorry.)

The value of anything is what you can sell it for the same day you bought it.

And here's a gem $20 with a seal that has that same forest green shade ! Common but still pretty !   Click image for larger version - Name: 20200627_201854.jpg, Views: 40, Size: 1.70 MB

I recently upgraded my $100 FRN 1928-A and PMG says it's a Dark Green seal, yet I see it as a Light Green seal.  I have a few comparison pics for the forum members to look at; perhaps it's a Transitional Green seal?

Here's an example of 2 different shades of dark green for the 28 series.Both are 1928 $50,both are from the G-A block and both are in the exact same grade of 58.It is easy to see that one (the later serial number) is lighter.I have had several of these examples so it is not an isolated phenomenon.

I am working on it as we speak. I have up to $50's done as of this writing, and plan to do more today.
