    Choice CU 1862 $5 Legal Tender

    Fr. 62 $5 1862 Legal Tender PMG Choice Uncirculated 63.
    Track and Price indicates a handful over 100 examples are known for this early Legal Tender note. This is the variety that bears the imprint of both the American Bank Note Company and the National Bank Note Company at the bottom of the note. This design of $5 bill was the workhorse note throughout the Civil War years and appears often in period photographs of pay tables and poker games. In this particular example the seal is a deep red color almost tending toward maroon, and it contrasts wonderfully with the green geometric designs and large 5 in the center of the note. Very well-margined, and one of the very few problem-free uncirculated notes graded by either service. PMG has graded only this and four other uncirculated examples.
