    One of Three Known & Likely the Nicest

    Selma, AL - $50 1882 Brown Back Fr. 512 The City NB Ch. # 1736
    This spectacular note is one of only three $50 Brown Backs known from all Alabama banks combined, and one of two from this Selma institution, although this type and denomination was issued by a total of ten banks in Alabama. It's almost certainly the nicest of the trio, and the only one to have been third party graded. It's just the kind of note that every collector could love, with exceptionally vivid colors, great margins, the lightest evidence of circulation, and dramatic two color pen signatures. It was last on the market three years ago, when it fetched $17,250, and we see little reason that this lovely $50 Brown Back should realize any less tonight. PCGS Very Fine 35PPQ.
