    Finest of Only Four Known

    Goldsboro, NC - $50 1882 Brown Back Fr. 515 The NB of Goldsboro Ch. # 5048
    Previously offered as lot 17888 in our 2006 Central States Signature Auction, this attractive note was described, "This note is a true miracle of survival, as it is one of only four $50 Brown Backs known from the entire state and the only example recorded from outside of Asheville. It's also the finest known for this type and denomination from North Carolina by at least a full grade. Pen signed, with the margins trimmed closely around the entire note..." Our grading opinion of Very Fine was duly enforced by a third party grading service, PMG Very Fine 25. We must note that this well-executed design was listed as No. 72 in the book 100 Greatest American Currency Notes.
