    Possibly Unique Fr. 281 $5 Silver Certificate Uncut Sheet
    PMG Superb Gem Unc 67 EPQ

    Fr. 281 $5 1899 Silver Certificates Uncut Sheet of Four PMG Superb Gem Unc 67 EPQ.
    A gorgeous uncut sheet of Chief notes, both as a sheet and as individual examples. This sheet and the $10 Bison sheet offered in an earlier lot are without a doubt the most impressive uncut sheets of Large Size Federal notes in existence. Not only is the condition superb, but the notes themselves represent one of the most popular types ever issued. Probably unique for this signature combination, with just one other uncut Chief sheet definitely confirmed - that being a sheet of Parker-Burke notes that was donated to the ANA Museum by Aubrey Bebee some 30 years ago - now forever off the market.

    Unlike the other four unique Speelman-White sheets offered here, one public record does exist for a $5 Fr. 281 sheet. The Albert A. Grinnell sale in March 1945, Lot 1042, did have an uncut sheet. Though the serial numbers were not given, the plate numbers match this sheet. It is not known if that was a second sheet, or if for some reason, this one sheet was sold to Grinnell, only to rejoin the group at a later date. The rest of the pedigree is quite impressive, as we detailed prior to the offering of the Fr. 39 $1 Legal uncut sheet: H. V. Speelman, Wayte Raymond; Col. E. H. R. Green; F. C. C. Boyd; John J. Ford, Jr.; Oscar Schilke; Ben Levin; Stanley Kesselman; Herman Halpern; and from thence to our present consignor in 1993.
