    Stone's Throw From a Gem Grade

    Fr. 270 $5 1896 Silver Certificate PCGS Choice About New 58PPQ.
    One very light bend is all that keeps this gorgeous Educational Five from being housed in a holder with a significantly higher grade. Luxuriously large margins frame this note that has vivid color and inks, bright paper, and strong embossing that is visible through the PCGS holder. After we first sold this note in 2009 the note received an offer of $12,750 through our Make Offer to Owner system, due to its tremendous eye appeal. The Lyons-Roberts signed notes are the more elusive of the trio of issues for this design. Clearly, this is a note that, despite its technically correct grade, is very likely to bring a hammer price close to that of many Choice Uncirculated examples.
