    Choice Uncirculated Georgetown Brown Back

    Georgetown, DC - $10 1882 Brown Back Fr. 485 The Farmers & Mechanics National Bank Ch. # (E)1928 PMG Choice Uncirculated 63.
    A tough early type from any District bank, this is one of the very few Georgetown Brown Backs of any denomination we've seen in recent years. This is a most attractive $10 Brown Back, and aside from one example in the unheard-of grade of PCGS 68, it is easily the finest Second Charter $10 reported from this bank. It is well margined with a vivid brown overprint and bold pen signatures. Some minor as-made ink stains on the back are noted by PMG, but do not detract at all from this pretty note's overall appearance.
