    One of Five Known Cincinnati $5 Demand Notes

    Fr. 4 $5 1861 Demand Note PMG Very Good 10 Net.
    To date only five reported survivors are known of this scarce Friedberg number. The note was payable at the Cincinnati Treasury Office and with no "for the" varieties known to collectors, it is the scarcest of the different locales engraved on the 1861 $5 Demand notes. Just one note above a Fine grade is known and that piece has been off the market for nearly three decades. PMG indicates some repairs, though the signatures are still bold for the grade. The grade should not be a deterrent to early Friedberg number collectors. With few other choices, this note was still good enough to have been included in the illustrious holdings of Albert A. Grinnell, Robert F. Schermerhorn, and Harry Bass.
