    Fr. 270 $5 1896 Silver Certificate CGA Gem Uncirculated 66. A glorious Five Dollar Ed, with broad, even margins and perfect color of both the inks and paper. This note, with its classic design, is considered by most currency aficionados to be the high point of the engravers' art. Fr. 270 is the scarcest by far of the three $5 Educationals. There are just a few more than a hundred examples known, most of which are heavily circulated. Fr. 268 has over 300 examples known, and 269 well over 200.
