    Beautiful and Rare Alabama Original Series Ace - Finest Known

    Birmingham, AL - $1 Original Fr. 382 The National Bank of Birmingham Ch. # 2065 PMG Very Fine 25.
    An excessively rare note as this one of only five aces reported for all banks combined in the state of Alabama. It is also easily the finest of that quintet as none of the other known pieces grade above Very Good-Fine, according to the National Currency Foundation census. As a bonus, it also comes from a very rare First Charter-only bank and it is one of only two notes reported from the bank. This is a very pretty note that certainly looks even nicer than its assigned grade and features ample margins all around, sharp ink colors, and delicate pen signatures. A couple of unobtrusive edge splits have been mentioned by PMG but they truly affect nothing. In its last auction appearance in 2012, this great Alabama rarity brought $12,650 and should certainly approach or even exceed that number again this evening.
