    Fr. 276 $5 1899 Silver Certificate Superb Gem New. This Napier-Thompson signed Chief from the Burnside Collection has all its original embossing, huge margins and perfect color of the inks and paper. We've sold only fourteen Fr. 276's in all our sales combined, and only six Gems. Of those six, four were in a single-digit cut sheet, and one was serial number 14. In 30 sales, we've sold only one Gem 276 with a normal serial number. This presently offered example is simply unimprovable, and it should please the most fastidious of collectors.
