Fr. 269. 1896 $5 Silver Certificate. PMG Gem Uncirculated 65 EPQ.
The highlight of a Gem trio of all three denominations offered in this PMG Gem Uncirculated 65 EPQ state. These Five Dollar notes are the highest denomination of this quickly replaced series as the designs were strangely enough, not well received by the contemporary public. Many stated the notes were too “Busy,” and the denominations could not be identified quickly enough. This Five Dollar “Electricity Presenting Light to the World,” theme was also one that was known as a note that was “banned in Boston,” with people there petitioning the removal of the design from issuance. Today, collectors deeply enjoy these bills as they simply are the pinnacle of engraving in regards to United States Currency. The amount of detail throughout the face and back is simply marvelous and when paired with the One and Two Dollar notes of this 1896 series, the appeal is stunning.
