    Finest Graded 1862 $5 Legal Tender

    Fr. 61a $5 1862 Legal Tender PCGS Superb Gem New 67PPQ.
    We offered this note once before, prior to PMG and PCGS being fully established in currency. The description was a rare look into the third party holder as it was not yet graded, "A deeply embossed, broadly margined, strictly original beauty. The centering of both sides is perfect on a type where centering is generally problematic. The note also has terrific embossing on an issue where it is virtually never present. All in all, one of the finest examples of this type to have come to light lately." PCGS agreed with our assessment. It is a true rarity for grade, the only 1862 $5 Legal Tender to have earned a Superb Gem grade from either grading service.
