    Elusive Mid-Grade Madison, Maine 1882 $10 Brown Back

    Madison, ME - $10 1882 Brown Back Fr. 485 The First National Bank Ch. # (N)4647 PMG Choice Very Fine 35 EPQ.
    A peach of a note from the only issuer in this rural central Maine community, it represents a very elusive charter that was only in business from 1891 until 1907. This offering is just the sixth note to surface from this tough charter. Madison has been a mill town focusing primarily on paper products for the past century, but today, it hosts the largest greenhouse in Maine covering 24 acres. This is a crisp, well margined piece with pleasing color, original surfaces, and bold pen signatures. In our 2019 Central States auction, we sold another $10 Brown Back in a PCGS Very Fine 30 holder with some light staining for $3,840.
