    Only Note Known From the Bank

    Newport, KY - $10 1875 Fr. 420 The First NB Ch. # 2276
    This is a truly wonderful item from a bank which was chartered at the tail end of the First Charter period in 1875 and proceeded to liquidate in 1897. This piece is the only known survivor from that unsuccessful venture, and traces its pedigree back to a 1951 Abe Kosoff sale. It then entered the collection of Glenn Martin, and only became available upon the dispersal of that collection in 2002. Once again, the Gale holdings give collectors the opportunity to obtain a unique item, and, once again, the condition is outstanding, with the note grading a bright Very Fine with vivid colors and no flaws whatever save for a few pinholes which affect nothing. This is another note which will look very inexpensive the day after the sale regardless of the amount it brings tonight.
