Friedberg 64. 1869 $5 Legal Tender Star Note. PMG Gem Uncirculated 66 EPQ. Broad margins and rich hues of green, red and blue are seen on this lovely 1869 $5 Legal Tender Note. This series is popularly referred to as "Rainbow" notes due to their colorful appearance. As with all of the Series of 1869 notes, this was issued for less than five years, from October 19, 1869 through July 25, 1874.This type represents the first appearance of Andrew Jackson on federal currency, and this portrait style remains in use today with modifications. The image was engraved by Alfred Sealey after Thomas Sullys original 1845 painting. The original painting is owned by the National Gallery of Art in Washington D.C., and was gifted to the institution by Andrew W. Mellon, one-time Treasury secretary.This was also the first series to feature the vignette <em>Pioneer</em> or <em>Pioneer Family</em>, for which this style is generally named (though it is often referred to as a "woodchopper" note by some collectors). The central vignette was engraved by Henry Gugler and thematically it embodied the spirit of the "Westward course of Empire" movement, something very much on the minds of many Americans at the time.The present example is exceptionally well printed, nicely centered and should appeal to a wide range of collectors. PMG has graded just two examples of the catalog number finer. <em>From Heritage/Currency Auctions of Americas sale of September 2001, lot 6278.</em>
