    Near Superb Serial Number 14 $5 Porthole

    Serial Number 14 Fr. 282 $5 1923 Silver Certificate PCGS Gem New 66PPQ.
    A pleasing example from the fourth sheet printed from the A-B block for this one year type featuring an engraved portrait of Lincoln within a circular frame which has been affectionately dubbed the "Porthole." The colors are sharp and the centering near perfect on this note which is printed on snow white paper. Fortunately an astute bank official recognized the importance of these low serial number notes when issued and a few notes were saved. It would make a great pair with the following lot that comes from the same sheet bearing serial number 15.
