    Wholly Original $5000 Federal Reserve Note

    Fr. 2221-G $5000 1934 Federal Reserve Note. PMG Choice Uncirculated 64 EPQ.
    This piece is a new addition to the census and appeared for the first time at a West Coast show earlier this year. It had yet to be graded by a third party and an examination revealed blazing originality and exceptionally prominent embossing, which can easily be seen through the PMG holder. Both the printed devices and the overprint are bold and complementary. Despite the merest hint of handling, a result of storage over the years since it was obtained from the bank, an argument could easily be made for a full Gem grade. Each of its attributes are framed by Gem-sized margins, and the overall appearance certainly would support the Gem grade as well. This outstanding note easily ranks as one of the very finest $5000 notes we have ever had the privilege of offering to the collecting public.
