    High Grade $100 Covington Brown Back

    Covington, KY - $100 1882 Brown Back Fr. 525 The Farmers & Traders NB Ch. # 2722
    A very scarce Covington bank which issued five, fifty and hundred dollar Brown Backs and Red Seals only. This is the only high denomination known from the bank, and is one of fewer than 20 $100 Brown Backs listed in the census from the entire state, the vast majority of which come from Lexington and Louisville. It is, in short, exactly the type of note Bill Gale sought out for his collection, one which combined bank rarity, type rarity, and condition rarity, and proves again that only when great collections are dispersed does the opportunity arise to find exceptional material like this being offered. Pen signed Extremely Fine, with a miniscule closed split in the top margin which can barely be detected mentioned only for complete cataloguing accuracy.
