    Near Superb Gem $5 Educational

    Fr. 268 $5 1896 Silver Certificate PCGS Gem New 66PPQ.
    Five dollar Ed's are seldom seen with the margins, color, and eye appeal of this beauty. It is easy to see why most collectors consider this type to be the highlight of the engraver's art. Both sides of this note have magnetic eye appeal and in equal part to the magnificent engraving and the note's wonderful state of preservation. The last PCGS Fr. 268 we had in this grade fetched a hair under $23,000, and it would not surprise us in the least if this beauty surpassed that number by a considerable margin.
