Gem examples of any denomination for this popular 1869 "Rainbow" series are very scarce and this $10 note shows as nicely as we can recall for the catalog number. These notes are often graded with the additional criteria of color, for which this note gets high marks. Terrific blue tinted paper at left of center, green under-printing at top and the bright red treasury seal and overprints combine to create the namesake of the series. Nice centering and margins and fully original paper both help attest to the Gem designation. PMG has graded under 10 pieces in finer grades than this offering and for a major and popular type, that number is far to low to satisfy demand.
