Fr. 268. 1896 $5 Silver Certificate. PMG Choice Extremely Fine 45.

A gorgeous four digit example of the $5 Educational, a simply unparalleled issue amongst the many the Bureau of Engraving and Printing has produced, with Electricity Presenting Light to the World the central vignette that many still marvel today. Portraits of President U.S. Grant and General Philip Sheridan are on back. As Grant had just been depicted on the previous 1886 issue, there is one other person that is depicted on both front and back of consecutive issues, that being Martha Washington on the 1886/91 and 1896 $1 Silvers. This beautiful C plate example certainly faces up like an uncirculated note, with even margins all around, and with only a center fold detected through the holder. Expect spirited bidding on this artistic masterpiece this evening…
