    Near Superb $5 1891 Silver Certificate

    Fr. 267 $5 1891 Silver Certificate PMG Gem Uncirculated 66 EPQ*.
    Although these 1891 Silver Fives are quite a bit scarcer in high grade than the 1886 Silver Dollar backs, they bring far less money simply due to the greater popularity of the earlier series. As the sophistication of the marketplace increases, this pricing anomaly will likely adjust itself. For the time being, high-end 1891 Silver Fives are a significant price sleeper. This note is magnificent with broad margins, deep original embossing, and the all important PMG comment "Exceptional Paper Quality." That comment comes with a further validation, with the holder bearing the new PMG "star," indicating that this note is a high end "66 EPQ," although we could scarcely imagine what a "low end 66 EPQ" might look like.
