    Los Angeles, CA - $5 1882 Brown Back Fr. 471 The NB of Los Angeles Ch. # (P)4096
    A fabulous $5 Brown Back in all respects. Over twenty years ago we were privileged to sell a cut sheet of these marvelous $5 Brown Backs. Each note was a drop-dead perfect gem, utterly original, meticulously margined, and with the crackling fresh paper quality and sparkling colors of a note that had been pulled from the press the morning we sold it. In the two decades since we have only had three opportunities to reoffer one of those examples, all of which had quickly disappeared into the hands of collectors who demanded the ultimate in quality. If that describes your collecting preference, we urge you to examine this note before the sale, as once you have seen it you will be satisfied with no less than perfection. PCGS Gem New 66PPQ, a superb specimen fit for the very finest of collections.
