    Newly Surfaced Danville $50 Brown Back

    Danville, IL - $50 1882 Brown Back Fr. 507 The First National Bank Ch. # 113 PMG Very Fine 20.
    While not the rarest of banks, this type and denomination certainly is rare, as it is just the second $50 Brown Back reported from this Illinois issuer. Best of all, it is a pleasing evenly circulated example with solid margins, strong color and signatures, and bright paper. The other known example in the census graded a mere Fine, and hasn't been seen since a 1994 auction. This is a very nice note for a great Illinois or type note collection.
