Tied With One Other For Finest Known

    Oakland, CA - $10 1875 Fr. 1151 The First National Gold Bank Ch. # 2248
    One of the very scarcest of the National Gold Banks, with the number of $10 examples in the National Bank Note Census standing at only eight pieces. This newly discovered entrant raises that total to nine. Fully half of the previously reported eight pieces grade Good or below, and the highest listed grade is a single Fine example which we sold as part of Tom Flynn's monumental collection back in 2008 for $29,900. The only recent sale of any Oakland $10 came when we sold a VG 10 specimen for $23,000 in our 2010 FUN auction. This example resides in a comment free PCGS Fine 12 holder, and is likely to see bids reach or exceed the 2008 realization in the Flynn sale.
