I wanted to point out a bit of a backwards thing.I believe it's backwards because people talk (make claims) and some people just simply believe.In my 20 years it was a fact, based on all the available reference material, that the 1928 $500 Boston was the key note....the rarest for not only the series but for all the $500's for 28,34 and 34A.I have seen HA and sellers on eBay make that claim still.Perhaps just going with what was without actually checking before they make that claim.But,it has not been that way for years now (several years in fact).Track&Price shows that Dallas is the key, far and away.The Boston pop is 42 and the Dallas is 25.Still,the sales data clearly shows that the Boston brings much much better money than the Dallas.This is likely caused by folks reading in the descriptions that it is the rarest....but that talk is expensive.Oddly enough, for people in the know, buying a 1928 $500 Dallas is quite the bargain and buying the Boston is just too damn much.See the T&P data.....(please note, though the Dallas data shows 24,there is one other note listed on another T&P page listed as FR# 2200KA).

I saw a Boston $500 on ebay a couple nights ago auction for crazy money. I'm guessing that's what triggered this post.
