    Gem Porthole 1923 $5 Purchased from Milford Bolender in 1957

    Fr. 282 $5 1923 Silver Certificate PCGS Gem New 65PPQ.
    A Gem Porthole from the mid-west collection indicated as ex-King Farouk through Milford Bolender in March of 1957. Incredibly fresh and held from the Superb level by a bottom face margin that though more than adequate is tighter than the top. To put this note in clearer historic perspective, the owner purchased it 34 years after it was printed. We are selling it 57 years after he purchased it.
