A question for you veterans. How "rare' are the $5 1928A Minneapolis FRNs? Oakes-Schwartz lists 652,800, but are they tough to find?

It, and the San Fran 1928C LGS seem to be the "keys". Any others from the 1928 FRN series?

Thanks for any help, Rog

With patience, you can evidently find a $5 1928-A Minneapolis note, depending on grade. Even CU notes are known, but beware of pressed EFs and AUs that appear CU.

The $5 FRN 1928-C San Francisco note is currently unreported, and all notes may have been destroyed as unissued when Series 1934 notes were released.

The $5 FRN 1928-C Cleveland is also unreported.

I concur with Jim—you will have no problem finding a 28-A Minneapolis. As far as it being the key, there a few other 28-A districts I would put before it.

I see a couple of $5 28A Minnys at each show I attend(2 or 3 a year)-perhaps they are the same notes and just not being sold.I personally don't grab them up as I already have a couple in my collection.They are most often found in vf or so and tend to be pricey as they are long known to be a tougher,but certainly not unobtainable,note.

Jamer, don't leave us (and me) in suspense. What "others" would you put?

Thanks

Districts such as Boston, Atlanta, St. Louis, Kansas Ciity and Dallas come to mind. These can be equally tough, if not tougher, to find in CU and the higher circulated grades.

Minneapolis is a victim of its own popularity—since so few were printed, and this number is documented, so many people are looking for it. In the meanwhile, many of the other districts are not being appreciated for their own scarcity.

For $5 FRN 1928-As, The Atlanta and Dallas notes are much tougher to find in CU than Minneapolis.

There is a new hoard of these, but some have minor problems in one margin. 

This is a note that should be very affordable now.

Wow.  Even 11.5 years later my statement is still true -- Atlanta and Dallas notes are still the rarest in CU.
