    Sole Reported Large Size $50

    La Junta, CO - $50 1902 Date Back Fr. 670 The First NB Ch. # (W)4507
    From a very tough southeastern Colorado bank, we are pleased to offer the only known high denomination example in the census. It is a true miracle of survival as the only high denomination notes issued by this Otero County bank during its entire existence were a paltry 50 two-subject sheets of $50 and $100 Date Backs. To date, this $50, with low serial number 25, is the only note that has been documented. Fortunately, it is as attractive as it is rare with excellent color and bold signatures. PMG has mentioned minor restoration but any such repairs are small and unobtrusive. With just 50 sheets issued, it is not likely that any other pieces are waiting to be discovered. PMG Very Fine 25.
