    Finest of Three Examples Known

    Denver, CO - $10 1875 Fr. 416 The City NB Ch. # 1955
    This is one of the highlight notes from our offering of the Frederick R. Mayer Colorado Territory Nationals. It was unknown until it appeared in our January, 1998 Florida auction, where we described it as follows: "A fantastic new discovery which is one of the very rarest Colorado notes we have ever been privileged to sell. Only two notes are listed in the census from this short lived bank, the first being a low grade and damaged Lazy Two in the hands of a prominent Colorado collector for a full generation and the second being a very well used Very Good $5 1875 example sold in the May, 1971 Donlon personal collection sale. That piece has never again surfaced in the ensuing quarter century. The $10 Territorial we offer here is by far the nicest of the three notes known on the bank, with clear pen signatures, good margins, and an exceptionally vivid red overprint. Fine, a great note which offers the sole opportunity to obtain an example from this bank for perhaps the next full generation." But for Mr. Mayer's untimely passing, that statement would likely have been true. Now, collectors are afforded only their second opportunity in thirty seven years to purchase a note from this excessively rare bank.
    From The Collection of Frederick R. Mayer
