    Superb Detroit Brown Back

    Detroit, MI - $5 1882 Brown Back Fr. 477 The Commercial NB Ch. # (M)2591
    Most of the uncirculated Brown Backs from Michigan come to the collecting fraternity through the First National Exchange Bank of Plymouth, with this premium example from Detroit being one of a small handful of $5 Brown Backs documented in the Kelly census from here as "CU." This example is clearly all that and more, with the accolades of its certified grade of PCGS Superb Gem New 67 PPQ obvious to even the most inexperienced collector. This is the type of note one should view if only for the educational value of seeing first hand what the virtual perfection of the 67 grade should look like. The paper is clearly as bright and original as the day this note was printed and the exceptional embossing is visible even through the encapsulation surfaces. Plan on a strong bid for this beautiful note, as the competition should be fierce and unrelenting in today's quality driven market.
