    Gorgeous, Evenly Margined, Well Printed $5 Educational PCGS 65PPQ

    Fr. 269 $5 1896 Silver Certificate PCGS Gem New 65PPQ.
    While we trust the accuracy of the grade, we have seen equal notes graded even one and occasionally two points higher. Unless there is some minor flaw hidden by the holder, the note seems conservatively graded in the extreme. The margins are broad and almost perfectly even on the face and the back centering appears absolutely perfect. Considered by most collectors to be the pinnacle of the engraver's art, there are great differences in inking of this design. Slightly over-inked examples appear muddy and lightly under-inked examples lack contrast. This one, although it is really a matter of personal preference, strikes this cataloger as ideal. An exceptional Educational $5.
