    Fully Gem Kansas City $5/$10 Double Denomination

    Fr. 1960-J $5/$10 Double Denomination 1934D Federal Reserve Note. PMG Gem Uncirculated 66 EPQ.
    While many errors were set aside quickly for their novelty, few were stored of kept in ideal condition. The number of error notes we have seen that served as wallet mementos or succumbed to massive handling while passed around in inevitable games of Show and Tell, make really high grade survivors unusually in many cases. One of the exceptions is the Series 1934D $5/$10 Double Denomination, which has some attractive high-grade survivors known, even Gem examples. The alignment of plates designed for two different denominations did not allow for the ideal alignment intended for a single denomination. Little room was left for margin aberrations, and thus had the smallest margin of error for the cutting process. As a result most double denominations have poor margins, and rarely even qualify for a Gem grade. Despite seeing some Gems, we can say this note stands out as the best of all the Gems we have seen for margin size and alignment. If the grading services took into account these slight aberrations and graded on a bell curve for errors, this note would notch a Superb Gem grade. But, alas, it is being compared to its "normal" brethren. Spend enough time in our archive and one will quickly recognize this broadly margined, and fully embossed note as a truly special error.
