    Spectacular Two-Digit Five Dollar Educational

    Fr. 268 $5 1896 Silver Certificate Superb Gem New. Huge margins, deep original embossing, perfect color and ideal centering of both sides are just the start for this impeccable $5 Educational. It's also Serial number 27, the lowest known serial number for this Friedberg number, save for the two single-digit uncut sheets that are recorded in the census but have never reached the market. We sold this note twice before in 1998 and in 2003. It was most recently in the October 2004 Sale of the John Whitney Walter Collection where it realized over $13,000. We feel at that level it was an overlooked item in a sale with a wealth of more spectacular pieces.
