    Serial Number 14 $5 Chief

    Fr. 276 $5 1899 Silver Certificate PMG Choice Uncirculated 64 Net.
    Low serial number H14 enhance both the value and visual impact of this lovely Chief. The Napier-Thompson signature combination is the only truly scarce Chief with just 58 examples known in all grades combined. PMG has assigned the Net grade for what they refer to as thinning, although we fail to see it. What we do see is lots of plainly evident original embossing and huge even margins. The old CAA sold this as a raw Gem in 1997 and Lyn sold it as a raw Gem in 2003. The "thinning" was spotted by someone who may not yet have been born the first time this note sold as a Gem. Last time out this note brought $28,750. That may be out of reach this evening, but we should come somewhere close.
