    Low Serial Number 14 Fr. 61 - Lowest Number Reported

    Fr. 61 $5 1862 Legal Tender PCGS Apparent Fine 15.
    This "No Series" Legal Tender Note is, in effect, Series 1 of the 72 series that were printed. Notes were numbered from 1 through 100,000 and then back to 1 again. To distinguish among serial number runs, notes were marked "Series 2," "Series 3," etc., each time a new run of 100,000 was begun. However, the first run of 100,000 was not marked, hence the existence of the very rare Fr. 61. This offering also has the distinction of carrying low two-digit serial number 14 and, according to Track & Price, this is the lowest number recorded for Fr. 61. Bright paper and attractive color are found on this moderately circulated example of this very early $5 Legal that has just had some minor edge repairs.
