    Silver Dollar Back $5 PCGS XF 40

    Fr. 261 $5 1886 Silver Certificate PCGS Extremely Fine 40.
    The Series 1886 $5 Silver Certificates are iconic in numismatics due to their famed "Silver Dollar" back design which features five Morgan silver dollars. One obverse of a Morgan dollar is in the center and it is flanked by two reverses on each side. The design emphasized to the bearer that this note could be exchanged for five silver dollars. The face served as a memorial as it depicts the recently deceased Civil War hero and president, Ulysses S. Grant.
