    Rarely Offered Fr. 66 $5 "Series A" Legal

    Fr. 66 $5 1875 Legal Tender PMG About Uncirculated 55.
    With less than 30 known, this 1875 "Series A" in red "Woodchopper" is rarely offered. Amazingly, Mike had three Fr. 66 notes from this limited census. Like the related 1875 $1 and $2 notes with red series letters, Uncirculated examples are virtually unheard of. There is a "Small Tear" noted by PMG, which is difficult to find. This is one of the examples known in better condition, and it has been off the market for decades. Ex: Hickman & Oakes, November 1985 sale, lot 250.
    From The Mike Coltrane Collection.
