    Boothbay Harbor, ME - $10 1882 Date Back Fr. 545 The First NB Ch. # (N) 5598
    A newly discovered note which is a great Maine rarity. Two notes are known from this one bank coastal community, with one never having been publicly offered. We are now privileged to have handled both specimens to have been offered to the collecting fraternity, albeit thirty years apart, because the last (and only) prior appearance of any note from this bank came back on our June 15, 1972 fixed price list, where we offered a Third Charter $20 from here (in nice grade, mind you) for all of $62.50. The example we now offer walked into a coin shop in the mid-Atlantic region and was immediately consigned to our sale by its astute purchaser. The face is most attractive and grades Fine or even better, while the back has some wallet staining over about half its surface. The fairest grade here seems to be Fine+++/Very Good. Grade is almost academic here at any rate, because the alternative to buying this piece tonight is to await the next offering, coming perhaps around the year 2032.
