    Mount Rainier, MD - $10 1902 Plain Back Fr. 635 The First NB Ch. # 12443
    A very rare Prince Georges County bank and the first note we have been privileged to offer from this short-lived charter. The First National opened for business in 1923, maintained a minimal circulation, and closed forever in March 1930. The latest census records a mere five large size, including tonight's piece, with a 1929 Series example yet to surface. Only one of those five large reported has appeared at public sale since 2000, and that was a low grade piece that realized over $3,000 two years ago. While some staining is evident on this PMG Choice Fine 15 Net example, it displays solid paper for the grade and bold stamped signatures. A great opportunity for a Maryland specialist to add a tough charter to their holdings.
