    Attractive and Fully Embossed $5,000

    Fr. 2221-K $5,000 1934 Federal Reserve Note. PMG Choice About Unc 58.
    A record of this note's existence has been part of the census for a few decades, though it never made its way through a public auction. Dr. Schmalhausen hand picked this $5,000 for its stunning eye appeal. The technical grade of 58 bestowed by PMG omits some very important attributes. The paper is attractive and original, with deep embossing of the overprint. Four full margins that are even from side to side and top to bottom perfectly frame the crisp devices. Overall, the eye appeal of this note would rival even a Gem grade. A wonderful survivor from a print run that only included 2,400 pieces.
