    $5 1934C Silver Certificate Mule Star-Unique With Back Plate 629

    Fr. 1653* $5 1934C Mule Back Plate 629 Silver Certificate. PMG Very Fine 25.
    An incredible rarity, which was long thought not even to exist. According to every small size specialist we contacted, it is unique, and, according to everyone we contacted, is likely to remain that way. Several compared it to the Fr. 1530 Mule star which we sold as part of the Taylor Family collection a decade ago, with that piece, which graded only Fine, realizing $9,200 back in 2005. Any estimate for this note is simply a speculation, as no others exist, but the overwhelming body of opinion among the specialist community is that this is a certain five figure specimen, and quite possibly well into that range. For the sake of total cataloguing accuracy, PMG does note the existence of three miniscule pinholes on this otherwise problem free piece, but where can another be obtained in any grade or at any price?
