    Excessively Rare $100 California Brown Back

    San Francisco, CA - $100 1882 Brown Back Fr. 530 The Western NB Ch. # (P)5688
    We sold this note back in September 2007, commenting: "An extremely rare California type which is the only $100 Brown Back known from this institution. It is one of just nine reported from all banks in the state combined, and one of just seven that come with a serial number to back up the listing. We can find no record of this piece ever appearing at public sale, and with the exception of The Horwedel Collection example from Fresno, which sold for over $22,000 in 2004, can find no record of any $100 Brown Back from this state having been available at public sale for at least a decade. Fine or even a bit better, with a small notation on the back margin that affects nothing." Six years later, the total of known California Brown Backs still stands at nine, and the total from this bank still remains at one. PCGS has concurred with our original grade, labeling this piece Fine 15 and mentioning the contemporary inscription on the back.
