    Description

    Fr. 267 $5 1891 Silver Certificate Superb Gem New. 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.
    From the collection of Malcolm A. Trask.
