    Superb 1891 Five Dollar Silver Certificate

    Fr. 267 $5 1891 Silver Certificate PCGS Superb Gem New 67PPQ. We sold this note a year ago last January as part of the spectacular Malcolm Trask Collection. It was described at that time as, "A spectacular example of this rarer type. These 1891 Open Back Five Dollar Silvers are less expensive than the much more common Silver Dollar Back type, due entirely to the popularity of the latter. In reality, Silver Dollar Backs are more than twice as common, but they sell for far more as the five silver dollars on the back seem to enamor people. This Second Back type is a perfect piece, with broad, even margins, super color, good original embossing and tremendous eye appeal. Like so many notes from the Trask Collection, it has the fresh feel and appearance of a note that was just pulled from an original pack. Utterly pristine." PCGS has graded the note 67PPQ and while we are generally in agreement with their grading, we remember this note from when we saw it raw and think they are a hair conservative on this one.
