    Description

    Fr. 3 $5 1861 Demand Note About Extremely Fine. Excellent signatures, far better than average margins and strong color highlight this Boston Demand Note. It also has an interesting printing anomaly. On the right side, the "for the" in front of "Treasurer" is printed in the normal type face that is seen on these Demand Notes. At the left, "For the" is in a larger, bolder type face, and it begins with a capital "F." It's a variety that we do not recall having seen before. The note in the next lot, also a Boston Five, has the normal printing.
