    Superb Gem Scofield-Gilfillan Signed Pioneer Five

    Fr. 70 $5 1880 Legal Tender Superb Gem New. By far the finest Fr. 70 that we have seen. Only 20 pieces are listed in the 2001 census, but since that time, a number of new pieces have surfaced. This note is the finest Fr. 70 to ever reach the auction block. The margins are broad, the colors are spectacular, and the note has retained all of its deep, original embossing throughout on both sides. Even as a type note, this would be an exceptional piece, but Fr. 70 is far from just a type note. Up to this date, only a single uncirculated note had even been auctioned, and this piece is far superior to it. This is certainly a difficult note to estimate, but we would be very surprised if it did not reach or exceed . . .
