    One of Two Notes Reported

    Talladega, AL - $10 1882 Brown Back Fr. 483 The First NB Ch. # (S)3899 PMG Fine 12.
    A great Alabama rarity from a tough Talladega bank that is the finer of just two notes listed in the census. The First National was a short-lived venture as it opened in 1888, issued a handful of Brown Backs, and then closed its doors forever in 1907. As we mentioned, only two notes are reported from here, including tonight's offering. It has seen its share of circulation but retains good color and signatures as well as solid paper for the grade. In our 2015 Long Beach auction, we sold the other known specimen, which is a PMG Very Good 8 with some edge tears, for $2,467.50. This pleasing, evenly circulated Alabama rarity should do a bit better.
