    Gem $5 Legal Tender

    Fr. 61c $5 1862 Legal Tender PCGS Gem New 66PPQ.
    An exceptionally rare note in this state of preservation, as these early Legal Tender Notes suffered a variety of maladies due to the thin paper used in their production, as well as the exceptionally narrow margins between all of the four subjects on each sheet. This piece displays well nigh perfect margins which are blessedly even all around. It is no wonder that it is one of only four Fr. 61c's to reach this grade level, with none higher. In fact, of the more than 225 examples of this type PCGS has graded to date, just one has graded higher than 66. A simply beautiful piece, and the finest to be offered in more than two years.
