    Tremendously Original 1886 $5 Silver Certificate

    Fr. 263 $5 1886 Silver Certificate PMG Gem Uncirculated 66 EPQ.
    Sold by CAA previously in January of 2000 where it was described Gem New, "The embossing on this particular note is tremendous, especially on a type that does not usually possess good embossing even in high grade. The inking is razor sharp and the paper has the sought-after Gem look and feel, perhaps the most underrated quality in determining a note's grade these days." Then, it realized $5,500. At its sale six years later we commented, "Today should be a very different result as eye-popping original notes like this do not turn up too often." It was a different result indeed, as the note then realized $32,200. Expect a not terribly dissimilar result tonight.
