    PMG 66 EPQ Fr. 279 - Tied for Finest Graded at Either Service

    Fr. 279 $5 1899 Silver Certificate PMG Gem Uncirculated 66 EPQ.
    We have sold two Fr. 279's in 66 previously, one from each service, with nothing higher. The previous PMG 66 EPQ was back at our FUN 2007 auction where it realized $11,500. Fr. 279 is a much scarcer number at the high end of the grading practice. PMG has graded a few 66's, but nothing higher. For the eleven Chief numbers combined, PMG has graded sixteen 67's and three 68's, with none of those nineteen notes a Fr. 279. PCGS's numbers are similar, with a healthy handful of 67 and 68 Chiefs, but nothing above 66 for Fr. 279. This note clearly deserved its lofty grade. The embossing is evident, and the margins and colors are just what one would expect at this level. A very pretty Chief.
