    Denver, CO - $1 Original Fr. 380 The Colorado NB Ch. # 1651
    The first of a wonderful denomination set from this important territorial bank, which was the second national bank chartered in Colorado. It was founded by the Kountze brothers as a private bank and obtained a national charter in August of 1866, eventually growing into one of the largest and most influential banks in the state. This is one of only four reported $1 examples in the census from this institution. This specimen is listed in the census as Choice Crisp Uncirculated, and we can well understand why, as the colors, paper quality and overall appearance, including the vanity signature of President Kountze, are those of a new note. A couple of light folds, however, do remove the note from the uncirculated range, mandating a grade of Extremely Fine+++.
    From The Collection of Frederick R. Mayer
