... 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.
