    Very Rare $5 1953B Silver Certificate

    Fr. 1657* $5 1953B Silver Certificate. PCGS Choice About New 55PPQ.
    This very rare star has original paper surfaces and ideal inks. This has proved to be one of the most difficult to obtain small size stars. A few of these stars escaped into circulation in the early 1960s when this series was first issued. The collectors of the day were confident that many 1953B stars would be eventually released and therefore they passed on the "high" prices being asked for the notes. Nevertheless, this large release never materialized due to the discontinuance of Silver Certificates. The collectors had outsmarted themselves and the rarity of this star was finally realized.
    From the Joseph C. Thomas Collection
