Legendary Tombstone, Arizona NoteTombstone, AZ - $10 1902 Plain Back Fr. 628 The First NB Ch. # (P)6439
This marks the first appearance we have had to offer a note from this legendary Old West town known as "The town too tough to die" and famous as the scene of the fabled gunfight at the OK Corral. Once a thriving boomtown of 15,000 people sitting atop massive silver deposits worth, by some estimates, fifty to seventy five million dollars, the town shrunk nearly to extinction by the time this bank received its charter, with the population dwindling to under 1000 early in the 20th century. Notes from this bank, the only issuer in Tombstone, have always been regarded as ultimate trophy items, and for the longest time their appearances were measured in decades rather than years. Recently, with the sale of Peter Huntoon's Arizona holdings along with the timely appearance of a very small number of notes from the family of bank President Mary Costello, collectors have been granted a small window of opportunity to own a high grade example from this always much sought after bank. Pen signed PCGS Very Fine 30PPQ, a great note worthy of a great collection.
