    Superb Lyons-Roberts Five Dollar Educational

    Fr. 270 $5 1896 Silver Certificate Superb Gem New. Fr. 270 is by far the scarcest of the three Five Dollar Educational numbers. Over 325 Fr. 268's are known, nearly 225 269's, and fewer than 120 Fr. 270's. The disparity becomes even more pronounced in the top grades. This is one of the nicest, if not the nicest Fr. 270 we have seen. The margins are broad and even all around, the inking and print quality is perfect, the centering of both sides is dead on, and the note has all its deep, original embossing. If you have been looking for a really great 270, or for that matter simply a great $5 Ed - or just a great Type Note - this note is for you.
