    Highly Sought After $5,000 1934 Federal

    Fr. 2221-H $5,000 1934 Federal Reserve Note. PMG Choice Uncirculated 64.
    Both the $5,000 and $10,000 Federal Reserve Notes are listed in the Top 100 Greatest United States Notes, and are highly regarded as the trophy notes that serve as pillars in some of the best numismatic collections ever achieved. For all districts combined, only about a half dozen Gems are graded by PCGS and PMG combined at the Gem level; leaving few options for bidders above the 64 grade. The print run of 2,400 for 1934 St. Louis $5,000s was incredibly small, with only Cleveland having a lower production level. The paper here is fresh, bright, and ideal for an iconic piece of currency. The face margins would be considered large enough for a full Gem grade, adding to its eye appeal. A highly sought after note, collectors will be clamoring for the opportunity to add this beautiful trophy note to their collections.
