    Description

    Fr. 1231SP 5c First Issue Back Proof PMG Choice Uncirculated 64 EPQ. This note is one of the very rare no-frameline First Issue Wide Margin Backs. All normal Wide Margin First Issue Specimen Backs have a thin but bold black frame line that surrounds the engraving at about the distance where the edges of a Regular Issue note would be. Examples are known of the Five Cent, Ten Cent and Fifty Cent denominations, with no Twenty-Five Cent yet discovered. An unproven but generally accepted theory is that these were produced for Treasury Specimen books but were not used. The 25¢ note that appears in those books also lacks the frameline but has the "ABNCo" monogram, which these notes lack. The 5¢ offered here is the most common, with four or five examples known. Milt Friedberg had only a 5¢, Tom O'Mara had a 5¢ and 10¢, and Wayne Liechty had a 5¢, 10¢ and 50¢. The most recent 5¢ to reach the market was the Fred Mayer piece in September of 2007, which realized $1,955.
