    Mismatched Charter Number Error- One of Two Known

    Ashland, VA- $5 1929 Ty. 2 The First NB Ch. # 11978 This is an excessively rare error which is one of just two known of its type. This note has mismatched charter numbers as both of the charter numbers in brown were set for numbers 11878, while the correct charter number is 11978. This example is pictured in Don Kelly's National Bank Notes- A Guide With Prices (4th Edition) on page 545. Kelly values this error at between $20,000 and $40,000, citing private and auction sales, with that looking like the correct range to us as well. Nice Very Fine, a trophy error and a great accompaniment to the mismatched prefix National error offered in this section as well.
