    Series 1875 Kansas Serial Number 1 - One of 12 Known for All Banks Combined

    Parsons, KS - $1 1875 Fr. 383 The First National Bank Ch. # 1951 PCGS Apparent Very Fine 25.
    This rare note is, according to the current National Bank Note Census, one of a mere 12 Series 1875 aces known from all banks in the country combined, and the only example extant from the state of Kansas. Interestingly, the same census reports 82 serial number 1 Original Series aces, indicating that the glamour of preserving serial number 1 specimens had faded considerably by the time that Series 1875 notes were produced. Also of interest is the grade spectrum for the known 1875 number 1 aces. While one would expect that most were saved by bank officials, only one of the 12 listed in the census is reported as uncirculated, with every other representative circulated to some degree. This piece has been off the market since it last was offered in 1999, having been in the possession of our consignor since that date. PCGS reports some edge restorations, but they are impossible to see through the holder of this otherwise quite attractive blue end paper example.
