    Serial Number 1 Red Seal

    Emaus, PA - $5 1902 Red Seal Fr. 587 The Emaus NB Ch. # (E)7139
    This is one of two serial number 1 Red Seals (one $5 and one $10) extant from Emaus, a small town in northeast Pennsylvania's Lehigh County. Both number 1 Red Seals have been off the market for many years, with the $10 having last appeared in our first CAA sale in November, 1990 and this $5 making its last appearance when our consignor acquired it in June of 1998. It is an attractively well margined example with bright colors and loads of eye appeal which has been graded Apparent Gem New 65 by PCGS due to a small repaired edge split in the bottom right margin.
