    Highest Graded Gorgeous $5 1953A Legal Star

    Fr. 1533* $5 1953A Legal Tender Note. PMG Superb Gem Unc 69 EPQ.
    PMG has graded only one Fr. 1533* star at this grade level and none higher and that is the exact example offered in this lot. We also noticed that PMG has not graded a single $5 Legal higher and only ten are graded equal. The other equals are from later series, a 1953C star, 1963 (5), and 1963 star (4). The star in this lot has centering that is right on the money within balanced margins, face to back registration that could not be better, and the embossing is bold. The last PMG 65 EPQ or higher example that we offered was a 65 EPQ that realized $5,040 in August, 2018. Tonight, we have a great star note that is teetering right on the edge of perfection and is certainly fit for the finest of collections. One must surely be prepared to bid at the high end of our estimate, if not higher, in order to secure this gorgeous $5 Legal.
