    Fr. 270 The Scarest of The Five Dollar Educationals

    Fr. 270 $5 1896 Silver Certificate PMG Extremely Fine 40 EPQ.
    This is the rarest of the three $5 Educational signature combinations. Over 1900 $5 Educationals are known, but only 20% of them are Fr. 270s. This one has the full look of a Gem example with perfect colors, broad margins, and no folds visible through the PMG holder. If this note realizes the price of the XF40 that it is, it should prove a tremendous value as no matter what the technical grade, eye-appeal always adds to value, and this note is simply loaded with eye-appeal.
