    Highest Graded Fr. 277 Star by Either Service - Tied for Finest Known for This Series

    Fr. 277* $5 1899 Silver Certificate PCGS Gem New 65PPQ.
    A beautiful star example which is not only the finest Fr. 277 star known but ranks up there with a veritable handful of others as finest known. PMG has graded only two Chief stars at this level, with none higher and with neither a Fr. 277, while PCGS has graded only this example at this level, with none higher. This is truly a spectacular piece, with exquisite print quality and deep original embossing, and bears a distinguished pedigree as well, having been obtained by our consignor from the collection of Jim Thompson back in 1992. If quality and rarity are what you are searching for, look no farther than this note tonight.
