    Lovely First Charter $50

    Louisville, KY - $50 1875 Fr. 448 The Citizens NB Ch. # 2164
    This is easily one of the most important notes in the Gale collection, and represents an amazing achievement, as Bill managed to obtain three of the six reported Kentucky First Charter fifties. This is one of the very nicest, if not indeed the finest of that very small group. It was obtained privately by Glenn Martin many years ago, and its only public offering came when Glenn's collection was dispersed back in 2002. This note is blessed with grade in addition to rarity, and displays bright colors, bold signatures, and plenty of eye appeal. Very Fine-Extremely Fine, an important rarity certain to see much attention tonight.
