    PCGS 65PPQ 5¢ Negative Essay Experimental

    Second Issue 5¢ Negative Essay Experimental Back PCGS Gem New 65PPQ. This beautiful Negative Essay back is printed in a brown color that is somewhat more golden than what was adopted for the regular issue. The paper is a soft, thin bond with just a very few scattered fibers throughout. These Negative Essays are extremely rare. For decades, there were none on the market, but the sales of the Friedberg, O'Mara, and Ford Collections over the past decade have freed up virtually the entire known supply of these pieces.
