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

    Madison, ME - $10 1882 Brown Back Fr. 485 The First NB Ch. # (N)4647 PCGS Very Fine 30.
    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 one of just four notes reported and the only one of the four we have handled since 1999. Madison has been a mill town focusing primarily on paper products for the past century but, today, it now hosts the largest greenhouse in Maine covering 24 acres. This is a crisp, well margined piece with pleasing color and the bold pen signature of the bank's president. PCGS has noted some light staining in the margins but the stains do not detract at all from the note's overall pleasing appearance.
