    Milwaukee, WI - $5 1882 Brown Back Fr. 466 The First NB Ch. # 2715 PMG Choice Uncirculated 63 EPQ.
    A drop dead gorgeous $5 Brown Back from the 1882 recharter of the original First NB of Milwaukee, which bore charter number 64. This is far and away the finest Brown Back we have ever seen from this charter, and carries the utterly inexplicable PMG grade of Choice Uncirculated 63 EPQ, with the comments "Exceptional Paper Quality & Embossing." As the margins are full and never even come close to touching the design at any point, your cataloger can only conclude that that the grading service had hit its quota of available Gem grades on the day this piece was graded and thus the grade of 63 EPQ rather than the 65 EPQ which it easily deserves.
