    Magnificent PCGS Gem New 66PPQ $5 1953B Silver Star

    Fr. 1657* $5 1953B Silver Certificate. PCGS Gem New 66PPQ.
    We sold a PCGS graded Gem New 65PPQ example from the Greensboro holdings in our January FUN auction for almost $16,000, commenting at that time that it was the only example of this rare star that PCGS had graded above About New. This piece now comes along to top that record. It is a remarkable note which is the nicest example of this rarity we have ever laid eyes on. The embossing is deep and original, the paper is fresh and snowy white, and the inks are as bright as the day the note left the press. If quality and rarity are any guide, expect the $16,000 mark to be swiftly eclipsed by this great note.
