    Medina, NY - $10 1882 Brown Back Fr. 487 The Medina NB Ch. # (E)4986
    This is one of New York's classic rarities, which comes from a bank which emitted only 883 sheets of Brown Backs during its nine year existence before entering receivership in 1904. By 1916, the total outstanding from here had already dropped to just $310. Just two notes are known on this short-lived institution - this one, which our consignor acquired in a heated battle at a Stacks sale for the magnificent sum of $1,375 in the pre-historic days of 1996, and the Sabis example which we sold in 2003 for $12,650. With both notes of equal grade and appearance, we expect this pen signed Fine-Very Fine beauty to realize at least that of its counterpart.
