    Unique for the Bank

    Central City, CO - $2 Original Fr. 389 The First NB Ch. # 2129
    Frederick Mayer obtained this note in its first offering to collectors when it appeared in our January, 2001 Orlando auction. As we noted there "An incredible new discovery which represents the only Lazy Deuce known from this Territorial bank. There was not even a whisper of the existence of a $2.00 example from here prior to this note's discovery, and its appearance represents the sole opportunity to add this denomination from Central City to any serious Territorial collection. While well circulated, there are no real problems whatever here, with the signatures strong and the margins well clear of the design. We are sorely tempted to call this note Fine, but will opt for the considerably more conservative Very Good-Fine. Whatever the grade, this offers the only opportunity for the advanced collector to obtain a Deuce from this much desired bank." More than seven years later, this note is still the only reported Lazy Two from this bank and one of only two Colorado Territory Lazy Deuces from outside of Denver.
    From The Collection of Frederick R. Mayer
