    High Grade Ketchikan Note

    Ketchikan, AK - $20 1929 Ty. 1 The First NB Ch. # 12578
    Although this is hardly a rare note with some thirty examples from here listed in the new Kelly census, it is highly sought after, with the supply of material from Alaska never coming close to catching up with the number of collectors who want notes from here. This piece, which is recorded in the census, is among the highest grade examples known from this bank, which issued small notes only. It's considerably nicer, in fact, than the $20 Type 1 which realized $11,500 in November of 2003, and, in this market, will likely top that sum by a considerable margin. Very Fine, with a small and barely visible area on bank stamp on the face.
