    Tied for Finest Known of the Type - PMG Gem Uncirculated 66 EPQ

    Fr. 61a $5 1862 Legal Tender PMG Gem Uncirculated 66 EPQ.
    Few if any of the early Legal Tender notes will even come near this beautiful piece in grade. It is tied for finest known, not only for its Friedberg number but for its type as well, as PMG has not graded any Fr. 61, 61a, 62, or 63, 63a or 63b any higher than Gem Uncirculated 66 EPQ. This piece is fully margined on both the face and back, displaying brilliant colors and tons of originality, both of which are easily visible through the PMG holder.
