    Ex-Grinnell Courtesy Autographed National Bank Note Foldover Error

    Omaha, NE - $10 1902 Date Back Fr. 616 The First NB Ch. # (W)209
    One of the greatest of all National Bank Note errors, and a piece that traces its pedigree all the way back to the fabled Grinnell collection sale, where it was lot 4411, sold as part of the "error and freak note" section, the largest offering ever of National Bank Note errors. This note is a foldover with a significant portion of the Treasury seal printed on the reverse. It is missing the blue overprint of the regional letter, charter number, and Treasury seal on the right side of the front and also, for some unknown reason, has been courtesy autographed by U.S. Treasurer John Burke. Any estimate is simply a guess for this PMG graded Very Fine 25 rarity, but its fortunate new owner is set to acquire something that will very likely remain unique forever.
