    Rare 1953B $5 Silver Certificate Star Note

    Fr. 1657* $5 1953B Silver Certificate. PCGS Gem New 65PPQ.
    A fresh and well centered example of this twentieth century star rarity that may be the nicest of its kind that we have ever offered. We have sold three Gem CU 1953B $5 stars in the past decade, one in the Taylor Family Collection auction in 2005 which realized $14,950, a second graded Gem Uncirculated 66 by CGA which fetched $18,400 in September of 2006, and this example in April of 2008. This piece, which is graded Gem New 65PPQ by PCGS, is at least the equal of either of the two notes listed above, and arguably superior to both. It is one of only two examples of this key star that PCGS has graded higher than About New, with this the sole 65. Expect to see bidding on this superlative example easily reach and perhaps well exceed...
