First Charter Notes.....

Original Series...

Ch 1923 $2 Original Series. The FNB of MILLERSBURG. PMG Very Fine 30, with "Net" for "Minor Thinning" (tiny spot visible when candled). From the only note-issuing National Bank in Holmes County.

Series 1875...

Ch 1204 $2 Series 1875. The NB of STANFORD. Slabbed by PMG as Very Fine 25, grossly under appreciated. A gorgeous Kentucky Lazy Two from an extremely rare bank. $14,500


Ch 1847 $2 Series 1875. The German NB of COVINGTON. Several years ago I had one of these (there are 3 in the census) it was in a PMG Gem 65 holder @$12,500. This one is PCGS Choice About New 55PPQ. Serial 355. $15,000

Ch 858 $20 Series 1875. The FNB of NEWARK. PCGS Choice About New 58PPQ, perhaps a tad conservative, but saves you 7 grand from the 64 price. $13,000



... First Charter Twenties are uncommon. Only four banks left behind multiple high-grade examples for collectors.
The First National Bank of Paris, IL (Ch 1555) , The First National Bank of Greenwich, NY (Ch 2517),
The First National Bank of Newark, OH (Ch 858) and the Fourth National Bank of Columbus, OH (Ch 2423).
The total number of survivors from these four banks is less than forty. The note offered below was last
sold publicly as lot 4266 of Bowers and Ruddy Galleries April 1981 sale. It was described there as Gem Crisp New.
PCGS took a more conservative view when they crowned it as Very Choice New 64PPQ. Opportunity is knocking.
A copy of the B&R catalog accompanies this note.
