    Unique for the State Original Series Georgia $20

    Augusta, GA - $20 Original Fr. 427 The NB of Augusta Ch. # 1613
    We sold this note in January of 2004 as part of the Rome collection of Georgia National Bank Notes, commenting at the time: "Only sixteen First Charter Georgia examples of all denominations are recorded in the new Kelly First Charter census, with only two of that number being $20 examples, one 1875 and one Original. This is the Original, which is unique for this type from the state of Georgia. Although well circulated Very Good and with some margin nicks and small interior splits, the note is bright for the grade and free of serious flaws. Any estimate here is just a guess, as it is a rare opportunity indeed to obtain any note which is unique for type for an entire state, but if true rarity and desirability are any guide, expect a realization in the area of $10,000-$15,000." The census of First Charters for the state of Georgia has increased to 20 from 16 during the past eleven years, but the number of Original Series Twenties from this state has remained exactly the same...just one, and this is it. PCGS Good 6.
