    Newly Discovered Hohenwald Large Note

    Hohenwald, TN - $20 1902 Plain Back Fr. 659 The First NB Ch. # (S)11985
    A lovely example which ranks as one of the great Tennessee discoveries of the past several years. This bank is listed as unknown in large size in both the Kelly and Track & Price censuses, although we do know that within the past couple of years a severely damaged large note from this bank was sold for a near five figure price. This piece, far superior in both grade and appearance, recently surfaced in a Midwestern cash hoard of a couple of dozen Nationals, all large twenties, none of which were previously recorded. Any guess here is merely speculation, as Tennessee collectors tend to know the difference between the merely scarce and the prohibitively rare, but it would not surprise us at all to see this pleasing Very Fine specimen easily reach and perhaps well exceed...
