    Desirable Indian Princess $5 T35

    T35 $5 1861 PF-1 Cr. 271 PCGS Banknote Very Fine 20 Details.
    A mere 7,160 notes of the "Indian Princess" design were printed and issued between November 26 and December 5, 1861. It is a mystery why only this small number of notes was printed before the design was terminated. The most logical explanation is that the stone used to print this note and its brother T27 $10 issue suffered some type of catastrophic failure. T35s are notorious for problems, restorations, and repairs. Aside from a missing upper left corner and a couple of small ink spills and rust specks, this note faces up quite well and is free of any repairs or glaring impairments. We last sold this example for $14,100 in our 2016 FUN Currency Signature Auction and expect it to test or exceed that level in this auction.

    Estimate: $12,500 - up.
