    Choice Uncirculated New York $5,000

    Fr. 2221-B $5,000 1934 Federal Reserve Note. PMG Choice Uncirculated 63 EPQ.
    Over 20 years ago, a very small run of Uncirculated examples of these $5,000 notes from the New York district were discovered, much to the delight of the collecting community. That run produced the only fully Uncirculated notes from the district, each only different ever so slightly in margin size, and none quite reaching the full Gem grade. This example fits that criteria with virtually Gem centering on the back, but the face centering is just a touch low. It does have nice paper wave, and bold colors and embossing. It is also only the second example of these high grade New York $5,000s to make a public appearance in the past five years. That lone other occurrence was in our 2018 FUN auction where a PCGS Choice New 63PPQ note, just one serial number away from this offering, fetched $162,000.
