    Solid 1861 $5 Demand Note

    Fr. 3 $5 1861 Demand Note PMG Very Fine 25.
    A very respectable, broadly-margined, well-signed Boston District $5 Demand Note. Track and Price indicates 108 examples are known, but three-quarters of them grade VF 20 or less. The very finest of the group is an XF 40. This note is well in the top 25% for technical grade, and likely considerably higher than that for appearance. It is also a small miracle that with the amount of circulation this note shows it has no problems whatsoever. The paper used was thin and weak, and edge tears, holes, etc. are nearly ubiquitous on this type. A solid note that will certainly please its new owner.
