    Paonia, CO - $20 1902 Plain Back Fr. 650 The First NB Ch. # (W)6671
    An interesting bank which was the only issuer in this small Delta County community. While Series 1929 examples are often available due to a small hoard of high grade pieces unearthed several decades ago, large notes from this western Colorado locale are very scarce, with the census listing only six pieces, including this example. It was one of two large notes from Paonia in the Mayer holdings, and was considerably the nicer of the pair as well, fetching over $1600 in that sale. With better Colorado material now again in demand, it would not surprise us at all to see that number exceeded this evening. PCGS Fine 15, a most conservative grade.
