    Rare and Lovely Fr. 277 Star Chief

    Fr. 277* $5 1899 Silver Certificate PCGS Apparent Choice About New 58.
    An exceptionally rare star example, with this piece one of just ten in the census. Only three grade About New or better, with this example one of that trio. A Choice New specimen was last offered as part of the Thompson holdings back in 1992 and has not reappeared since, while the other About New example was last offered in our 2005 FUN auction, where it fetched $14,375. PCGS mentions some edge repairs at the top right, which are indeed present, but the note is bright, nicely centered, and boldly printed. Expect bidding to easily reach and quite possibly well exceed...
