    PMG Gem Uncirculated 66 Silver Dollar Back

    Fr. 263 $5 1886 Silver Certificate PMG Gem Uncirculated 66. This piece was last sold by CAA in September 1997, where the note was graded Superb Gem New and realized $3850 against an estimate of $3750-up. The superlatives related to being broadly margined, fully bright and strictly original fit as well today as they did a decade ago. The embossing was compared then to the type found on $5 Legals. The centering on both sides is virtual perfection. Today, these eye popping notes with a degree of history to back up the grade will bring multiples of what was paid a mere ten years ago. A similar example from the same run sold by us in Long Beach last year realized $32,200 against an estimate of $20,000-up. Be prepared for a slugfest to acquire this beauty as it should see about the same result if not an even higher realization.
