    Rare Bowling Green, KY $20 Red Seal

    Bowling Green, KY - $20 1902 Red Seal Fr. 639 The Bowling Green NB Ch. # (S)7804
    This note was part of the massive Kentucky collection we sold at the FUN show in January 2006, where we said "A very rare Bowling Green bank which issued Red Seals and Date Backs only before closing its doors forever after only six years of operation in 1911. This Red Seal was obtained in the Martin sale, which represented the only opportunity during the past twenty five years to obtain even one example from here at public sale." At that sale, this rarity fetched $9200. No example from this bank has been available to the collecting fraternity since 2006, and the census remains at just five pieces, including this Red Seal. PMG Very Fine 25 Net, with "Repairs," although they are certainly not visible through the holder.
