    Newly Surfaced Frederica Date Back
    First Offering Since 2007

    Frederica, DE - $10 1882 Date Back Fr. 545 The First National Bank Ch. # (E)5421 PMG Choice Fine 15.
    A great new addition to the census of this excessively rare Delaware bank, this is just the fourth note reported from this town's sole issuer, and the first to be publicly offered anywhere since 2007. Frederica was the host to just one national bank which issued Second Charter notes only from 1900 to 1920. Prior to this evening, only three notes were known to be extant - a $5 Brown Back which has never appeared at public sale, a $5 Date Back which was last sold at auction in 2005, and a $10 Date Back which appeared at auction in both 2001 and 2007. In all three of the auction appearances, the offered notes generated five-figure realizations, attesting to the rarity and desirability of any note from this location. This new addition is an attractive, well margined, pen signed $10 Date Back that has encountered just even wear. It presents a great opportunity for today's generation of Delaware collectors.
