    The First of a Consecutive Pair of Superb Fr. 270's

    Fr. 270 $5 1896 Silver Certificate Superb Gem New. The first of an unbelievable pair of spectacular Fr. 270's. Fr. 270 is the rarest by far of the Five Dollar Educationals, with only about 130 known, compared to 400 Fr. 268's and 250 Fr. 269's. The disparity is even more pronounced in high grade, with the huge majority of known Fr. 270's being well circulated. Both of these notes have spectacular color, broad, even margins, excellent centering of both sides and tremendous eye appeal. Only one other consecutive pair of Fr. 270's is listed in the census, and they were sold in two different sales over a quarter of a century apart. If you have been searching for a gorgeous Five Dollar Ed for your type collection and would like the added bonus of the scarcest number, either one of these beauties would be perfect for your collection.
