    Keokuk, IA- City of Keokuk $5 Nov. 1, 1857 Oakes 81-4 (2015) PCGS Fine 15.
    A rare seldom seen municipal issue, this $5 has a large center vignette of Liberty reclining by an eagle and a large red FIVE protector. This is, not surprisingly, the only example which we have been privileged to offer in any of our auctions. It crossed the auction block for $1,165 in its first appearance in 2017, attracting spirited bidding. There is no reason to believe that this price level will not be tested tonight. PCGS notes edge splits and tears. On notes of this rarity they have minimal impact on the note's desirability.
