    Attractive Chicago $5000

    Fr. 2221-G $5000 1934 Federal Reserve Note. PMG Choice Extremely Fine 45 EPQ.
    This pleasing $5000 exudes originality and the eye appeal of a full AU example. Three light bends account for the grade, though the colors are exceptional, and the embossing is prominent and easily seen through the holder. Even the finely engraved lines in Madison's jacket are well embossed and visible in the open fields on the back. A decent number of Chicago District notes are listed in the census, only two are reported to be uncirculated. The recent Krause Publication release of the Standard Catalog of United States Paper Money includes this note as the plate note for the denomination.
    From The Chet Krause Collection
