    Covington, KY - $1 1875 Fr. 384 The German NB Ch. # 1847
    A bright and boldly printed Series 1875 ace with all the color and eye appeal that any collector could desire. It comes from a small run of about a dozen similarly graded aces, with the last one offered having been sold by us in 2009 for $4,600. All Kentucky notes, whether First Charters or Brown Backs, display the same seal, which roughly duplicates the so-called official seal, save for the fact that the two men shaking hands on the state's adopted seal are dressed well but not formally, while the seal used on the notes shows two men shaking hands in front of a document, with each of the individuals formally attired in tailcoats, with one wearing white dress trousers. The state motto United We Stand, Divided We Fall is present on both seals. PCGS Choice New 63.
