    Beautiful Fr. 277 Embossed Chief

    Fr. 277 $5 1899 Silver Certificate PMG Gem Uncirculated 66 EPQ.
    This beautiful Chief made its first numismatic appearance that we know about on a fixed price list in 1987. Since then we cannot find a single auction appearance for it. The centering is so very close to perfect that a micrometer would be the very best way to measure this plate letter A example's balanced margins. Another excellent trait is that it possesses white paper and dark inks. We also find upon further inspection that both serial numbers and the Treasury Seal show embossing on the back. Due to this, it is no wonder why the "embossing" statement was added by PMG to the back label. A closer look at the PMG Population Report tells us that they have graded over 5,200 Chiefs with only 21 higher than our current offering.
