    Eagle, Colorado Discovery Note

    Eagle, CO - $20 1902 Date Back Fr. 644 The First NB of Eagle County Ch. # (W)9013
    This tremendous new discovery is the first note ever reported from Eagle, with this the only issuing bank in this mountain community near the Vail resort. Only large size notes were issued from here, and a mere $840 total was outstanding in 1935. The note's survival is apparently due to its being kept as a keepsake, which appears to be the case as there is mild wallet staining on the right half of the face side. This wallet staining is all that reduces the grade to Very Good overall, as the rest of the note grades a solid Fine. There are a few minor edge splits at the folds and one of the quarter folds is a little heavier than the others, but grade will likely prove to be irrelevant on a super new discovery like this. With rare Colorado notes bringing increasingly higher figures in recent years and with this note certainly on a number of collector "wish" lists, we would not be surprised if our estimate here proves to be conservative in the extreme. Certainly one of the highlights of this offering, this note will likely inspire some of the most competitive bidding that we will see this evening.
