    Spectacular Maysville Rarity-Finest of Two Known

    Maysville, KY - $5 Original Fr. 399 The NB of Maysville Ch. # 1702
    This example is the other surviving note from this bank, which was obtained by Bill at the first Martin collection sale. It is an absolute peach of a note, grading a solid Very Fine with bright colors, good signatures, and loads of eye appeal. When this piece was last offered, it marked the first appearance of any note on this bank at public sale, and this auction may well mark the last such appearance for years, if not even decades. We have used the phrase "If this were a coin" when discussing values for years, but items with rarity of this magnitude show how far Nationals really have to go before they are fully priced within the numismatic community. This is truly a trophy item well worth whatever number it brings tonight, and one which will likely look like a bargain tomorrow no matter what that number is.
