    Finest Known Series 521 $5 Replacement

    Series 521 $5 Second Printing Replacement PCGS Gem New 65PPQ
    Not only is this exceptional example the highest graded Series 521 $5 replacement, it is the only one from the second printing reported. We have auctioned only four other examples of this rare $5 replacement, with three of them possessing a net grade. Carlson Chambliss mentions there are ten examples known in A Concise Catalog of US Military Payment Certificates with the average grade of Fine 12. The next highest grade known is a VF 25 graded by PMG, so this remains the sole Gem example and by far the nicest piece available.
