    One of Only Three Uncirculated Fr. 261's at PCGS

    Fr. 261 $5 1886 Silver Certificate PCGS Apparent Very Choice New 64.
    Beautifully margined with the eye appeal of an absolute Gem. A scarcer Friedberg number and particularly so in high grade. PCGS has graded roughly the same amount of Fr. 261's and 263's, yet they have graded only three Uncirculated Fr. 261's with the highest grade a 64. They have graded 46 Uncirculated 263's. The Apparent grade has been assigned for "Minor Restoration at Top Right Near Serial Number." PCGS is almost always accurate with their comments, but we are unable to find this one.
