This is the third time we’ve had the honor to handle this rare $5000 FRN in the last 15 years. We first purchased the note raw in 2005 and felt the note CH/GEM quality from the get go. Not third party graded until just today, it now resides a PMG CH CU 64 EPQ holder. It is among the highest graded $5000 FRN’s, a condition census quality example.
The the note has GEM centering and is only held back from the GEM 65 EPQ grade due to some minor handling on the right. A BEP “as made” paper crinkle or “lightning bolt” is also observed but does not detract from the technical grade or market grade of this note. Infact, most ultra-high denoms are found with this feature. – Offered for the first time now in freshly graded PMG to the advanced collector / investor.
