    Lapeer, MI - $5 Original Fr. 399 The First NB Ch. # 1731
    A most attractive Original Series $5 note with loads of eye appeal. It's the only Original Series five known from the bank, and bears an illustrious pedigree dating back to the celebrated Albert A. Grinnell collection sale of 1946, where it was lot 4137, and last appeared as lot 134 in the April, 1978 Hickman-Oakes sale. PMG notes a couple of very minor flaws, including a couple of chips out of the left margin and a small split at the top, but none of the problems mentioned were substantial enough to call for a Net grade. PMG Uncirculated 62.
