    Second Issue Negative Essay 5 Cent Note

    Milton 2E5R.2b 5¢ Second Issue Negative Essay PMG Gem Uncirculated 66 EPQ.
    In January of 2010, this beautiful piece was offered as part of our FUN Currency Signature Auction and realized more than $2500. The description read, "This Five Cent negative is as pretty as they come. We are unable to photo-match it to any of the pieces that have sold in the past decade, but it is as nice as the very best of them. It's perfectly centered and with beautiful color. PMG mentions Exceptional Paper Quality as well as Great Embossing. They also pedigree it to the Ford-Boyd collection and mention the small penciled '209' on the blank back."
