    Rare and Lovely $100 Davenport Brown Back

    Davenport, IA - $100 1882 Brown Back Fr. 522 The Citizens National Bank Ch. # 1671 PMG Uncirculated 61.
    This institution issued First Charters and Brown Backs only, before liquidating in October of 1906. While a small group of notes from this charter have survived, courtesy of a cash hoard set aside by another Davenport bank, this piece is one of only two $100 Brown Backs extant from the bank, and one of only fourteen recorded from the entire state, according to the National Currency Foundation census. It's also easily the finer of the pair reported from this bank, neither of which has made a public appearance since we last offered this note in our 2006 Long Beach auction. Aside from a minor margin restoration mentioned by PMG, this is a great example for type as well, with bold colors, strong pen signatures, and an overall appearance which is certain to delight its next fortunate owner.
