One of the finest known $5000 Federal Reserve Notes is set to cross the auction block as part of Stack’s Bowers Galleries’ Official United States Currency Auction at the ANA World’s Fair of Money this August in Pittsburgh. The note is a Fr.2221-K Series of 1934 note from the Dallas district and has been graded Gem Uncirculated 65 EPQ by PMG. It is one of just six $5000 FRNs that have achieved that grade at PMG with none finer.

This example features bright paper and broad margins. The low serial number of 60 is displayed is vibrant lime green inks at the bottom left and upper right, as is the sharply detailed Treasury Seal at right. This incredible high denomination rarity will carry a pre-auction estimate of $300,000-$400,000 when it is offered in our August auction.

The Stack's Bowers Galleries Official Currency Auction of the ANA World's Fair of Money will be held August 4-7, 2020. For information on consigning to the auction please contact Director of Currency Peter Treglia at [email protected] or Currency Specialist Brad Ciociola at [email protected]
