    Fr. 270 The Scarcest of the Five Dollar Educationals

    Fr. 270 $5 1896 Silver Certificate PMG About Uncirculated 53.
    Fr. 270 is by far the rarest of the three Five Dollar Educational signature combinations. This one is perfectly natural, with just a few folds and a little handling at the corners. The margins are extremely broad at the top and sides on this "C" position note, the colors are strong, and the note has terrific eye appeal. There are 401 Fr. 270's known, most of which are heavily circulated. Fr. 268 has 1,082 examples known, and 269 is represented by 679 pieces, according to Track & Price figures from December of 2014.
