    Bangor, ME - $5 1882 Brown Back Fr. 466 The First NB Ch. # 112
    Tom Bergin didn't have many non-New York State Nationals in his collection, but he did have this blockbuster of a $5 Brown Back. If ever a picture was worth a thousand words, it's here, as no printed description could ever evoke the beauty and desirability of this gorgeous Brown Back. Adding to its appeal is its grade, which is actually New save for three totally inconsequential folds. The note has retained all of its originality, displays its full embossing, and likely had no real circulation whatsoever, as the colors and signatures are as fresh as the day this item left the bank. This specimen has been off the market since Tom obtained it back in 1983, and no example from this bank was found in the massive Power Collection of $5 Brown Backs. Extremely Fine+++.
    From The Thomas A. Bergin Collection
