    Heralded Indian Princess $5

    T35 $5 1861. This is the heralded "Indian Princess" note, the rarest Confederate type, and a note that is nearly always found in low grades or with repairs. Tonight's first example has neither of those conditions, as it is a solid Fine, with sound edges, and even wear that easily hides a few trivial pinholes. The right-hand edge has a small carbon spot, but in no way does that affect the overall beauty of this lovely mid-grade $5. This "Indian Princess" obviously ended a very long painstaking search by our determined consignor. This is the nicest example we have handled, and it falls within Fricke's condition census top ten range of Fine to AU. Only when the best Confederate collections cross the auction block do the "Indian Princess" notes become available, so this classic Confederate rarity will probably be awarded to the bidder who abandons their original limit.
