    Highest Grade Fr. 63b Ever Offered at Auction

    Fr. 63b $5 1863 Legal Tender PCGS Gem New 66.
    An exceedingly rare note in this state of preservation, with this example one of only two specimens to have been graded 65 or better by PCGS, with a similar number having been graded to date by PMG. All of the four have been tightly held for years, with this piece the first to be offered at public sale. As befits a note carrying the Gem 66 grade, the colors, centering, and eye appeal are captivating, easily ranking this as one of the very finest Legal Tender Notes of any denomination we have ever offered. If you are searching for the very best, this is a note that easily merits entry into your holdings.
