    PMG 65 EPQ Fr. 77 - The Finest Known by a Wide Margin

    Fr. 77 $5 1880 Legal Tender PMG Gem Uncirculated 65 EPQ. Unlike many of the 1880 Five Dollar Pioneers, Fr. 77 has no high-grade runs. Although 70 notes are known, it is an extremely important note in high grade, with the Track & Price census reporting only three high-grade pieces, none of which has been graded by PMG or PCGS. PCGS has graded three Fr. 77's with none uncirculated, and PMG has graded six Fr. 77's, with this spectacular 65 EPQ being the only uncirculated piece. It's an absolute beauty, with broad margins all the way around, 100% perfect color of the paper and inks, and ideal centering of both sides. To top all that off, PMG has awarded it two significant positive comments, "Exceptional Paper Quality," and "Great Embossing." The finest known by a wide margin, and likely to stay that way.
