    Beautiful High Point, NC 1882 $5 Brown Back

    High Point, NC - $5 1882 Brown Back Fr. 469 The National Bank of High Point Ch. # 3490 PMG About Uncirculated 53.
    A wonderful new discovery from an extremely rare High Point bank which issued Brown Backs and Red Seals only before liquidating in 1907. Just seven notes are listed in the census under two titles for this rare charter with tonight's offering a welcome new addition. It is as pretty as it is rare, with its full original colors, bold pen signatures, and just minor handling. It also features an appealing bank title layout for which many of the early $5 Brown Backs are known. As a bonus, it carries a low serial number of 77. PMG has commented about a slightly miscut bottom left corner but the cut does not encroach upon the design and is not at all distracting. Last year, we sold another $5 Brown Back from this charter in a PMG Extremely Fine 40 holder for $6,000.
