    Description

    Unique for This Friedberg Number- Finer of Two Known for This Series

    Fr. 87* $5 1907 Legal Tender PCGS Very Fine 25.
    A fantastic note in all respects, and one of the key items in Richard Merlau's inverted reverse collection. This piece is one of only two $5 Legal Tender star inverts known, and is by far the better of the pair, grading a solid Very Fine to its companion's Very Good-Fine. Neither example has been offered to collectors at public sale for decades, with Richard having obtained this note privately twenty years ago. Any estimate here is certainly a rank surmise, because when the hammer falls on this lot today the opportunity to obtain any large size $5 Legal star invert will likely have vanished for many years to come.
    From the Richard Merlau Collection of Large Size Error Notes, Part V
