    Tied for Finest Known

    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, as 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. In fact, it has been three years since any similarly graded Fr. 61a has appeared at auction. This piece is fully margined on both the face and back, and displays brilliant colors and tons of originality, both of which are easily visible through the PMG holder. If you desire and can afford the finest, this is a note to bring home this evening.
