    Superb Chief Star Note - Likely Finest Known

    Fr. 274 $5 1899 Star Note Silver Certificate Superb Gem New. Only a total of 54 Chief stars are known for all numbers combined, and of that group only a handful are listed as uncirculated. Four Fr. 274 stars are known with this and one other being listed as uncirculated. This note is absolutely Superb, it would be a standout Chief even if it was a non- star and a common number. The colors, margins and every other possible point of interest on this piece is at the very top of the scale. The original embossing is exceptionally deep and easily seen by even the untrained eye. This is by far the finest Chief star that we have ever seen, and it is very likely the finest in existence. A true wonder note. Est. 15,000up
