    Little Ferry Fourth Large Size Reported

    Little Ferry, NJ - $5 1902 Plain Back Fr. 609 The Little Ferry NB Ch. # 12378 PMG Very Fine 25.
    An excessively rare North Jersey bank with a great bank title that was the sole issuer in town. In large size, this bank only issued $5 1902 Plain Backs and almost 100 years later, only four have been documented by the National Bank Note Census. Also, only one of those has crossed the auction block previously. That raw Fine-VF example fetched $12,075 at auction in 2012. This far superior piece is a bright example with sharp inks and rubber stamped signatures of Cashier Peter A. Wiseman and President Oswald C. Mehrhof. PMG has commented about a minor repair, but any such repair is more than offset by the rarity and desirability of this great National.
