    Among the Highest Graded Examples of 1890 $5 Treasury Notes

    Fr. 361 $5 1890 Treasury Note PMG Gem Uncirculated 66 EPQ.
    A stunning example of an 1890 Treasury Five. It is hard to argue the grade here. The colors are impeccable, the margins are easily high-end Gem quality, and the eye appeal is stunning. The elaborate back engraving possesses an almost hypnotic effect if gazed upon for a long period of time. General Thomas, in the opinion of most Civil War authorities, deserves to be right up there with all of the household-name Civil War generals. It was his misfortune to have spent his entire career in the western theater where press coverage was severely lacking. It is not entirely unlike modern sports figures who remain as relative unknowns when playing for Midwestern teams, but would be nationally known for the same performance in New York or California.
