    Beautiful Fr. 466 $5 Brown Back

    Dayton, OH - $5 1882 Brown Back Fr. 466 The Third NB Ch. # 2678
    The Flynn collection Brown Backs open with with one of your cataloguer's favorite notes in the entire collection. This piece has everything a collector could ever hope to find in a $5 Brown Back, including a great layout, exceptionally bright paper and ink colors, bold pen signatures, and incredible paper quality, with the embossing easily seen here through the third party holder. This note also comes with a stellar pedigree, having passed from the Bailey collection to Bob Medlar's state collection of Brown Backs, which was sold by Hickman-Oakes auctions back in 1987, when it was obtained by Tom. PMG has graded this note Gem Uncirculated 65 EPQ, a grade which may even be a tad conservative, as this lovely Brown Back is certain to delight even the most demanding of collectors.
    From The Thomas M. Flynn Collection
