    Wonderfully Bright and Fresh 1862 $5 Legal

    Fr. 61a $5 1862 Legal Tender PCGS Gem New 65PPQ.
    The paper used to produce this issue often turned brittle and aged very quickly. As a result, truly high grade examples are extremely desirable. This piece escaped all signs of aging and boasts pleasing original paper and exquisite colors on all the design elements. The thin paper also split extremely easily at the edges, another near ubiquitous problem that this note has avoided. PCGS has graded 160 examples of this number with only eight edging out this piece. None could be brighter, cleaner or more perfect save for centering. With a touch more margin at the left, this piece would likely be the finest graded.
