    Excessively Rare Choice New 63 Fr. 265

    Fr. 265 $5 1886 Silver Certificate PCGS Choice New 63. Fr. 265 is by far the scarcest of the $5 Silver Dollar Backs, with fewer than three dozen examples reported in all grades combined. The vast majority of pieces are well circulated, with the grading service census revealing that PMG has graded only one piece higher than Extremely Fine and PCGS has graded only two pieces higher than About Uncirculated. The note we offer tonight is one of those two, and it is the only one of the uncirculated or better PMG or PCGS graded notes to make it to the auction block. We sold an ungraded 63 example for $29,900 in 2006, and we see no reason that this truly bright and attractive PCGS graded note should not well exceed that figure tonight.
