By Gem New 65, the population graded by each service shrinks to one note for each service, and by the time the grade of Gem New 66 is reached the number again comes up as one for each service, with this the sole example to reach that grade from PCGS. This is a notoriously ill margined Friedberg number, but this specimen has as much margin on both the top and bottom as any Fr. 92 we've ever seen. The back centering is well nigh perfect, and the note is blazingly original and perfectly printed. It also contains the "PCBLIC" engraving error on the reverse, which is noted on the PCGS holder.
