1963 UNC $1 Barr Note w/ Plastic Case

Joseph Walker Barr was Undersecretary of the Treasury from 1965 to 1968 during the administration of President Lyndon Johnson, and U.S. Secretary of the Treasury from December 21, 1968, to January 20, 1969, the shortest term of any Treasury Secretary. United States paper money always depicts the signature of the Treasury Secretary and because of Barr's short term, notes bearing his signature are scarce. $1.00 notes were printed bearing his signature, but with $1.00 notes typically lasting 21 months in circulation (due to their limited lifespan) it is unknown how many still exist. No other denominations were printed with his signature, however. The $1 Federal Reserve Joseph Barr Notes were only issued to five of the 12 Federal Reserve Districts. The respective districts are: New York, Richmond, Chicago, Kansas City and San Francisco.
