    Beautiful Fr. 268 $5 Educational

    Fr. 268 $5 1896 Silver Certificate PCGS Gem New 66PPQ.
    The female figures portrayed on the note are bare breasted which led to an outcry by society women in Boston and in turn led to many bankers refusing to accept the notes. The controversy over the $5 Educational note has been cited by several sources as the origin of the phrase, "banned in Boston." Whether true or note, there is no disputing the beauty of this piece. The ornate back features portraits of Civil War Union Generals Ulysses S. Grant and Philip H. Sheridan. A very nice example of this always popular design type which ranks right up there as one of the nicest we have had the opportunity to handle.
