This note was at only $960.00 in the last 5 min.
Then when there was about 1 min left someone jumped in the bidding at $2,400 and won the item.
The reserve was probably around $2,000

This was a great deal considering these book around $3,500

Do consider that the note did have pin holes. In addition, it is difficult to tell if the grade was accurate with a small picture. Of course a supersized scan would not eliminate the problem it would surely help.

Not such a great deal in my opinion as the note is trimmed into the bone at the bottom, i.e., part of the design has actually been trimmed off. This is the worst type of defect in my opinion. Give me a few pin holes on a well-centered note anytime! I realize that others may not share my personal preferences though.
