    Newly Discovered Gem Serial Number 1 Brown Back

    Bay City, MI - $5 1882 Brown Back Fr. 472 The First NB Ch. # 2853
    A true wonder note which came right out of the weeds and has never before been offered to the numismatic community. The census enumerates eleven serial number 1 $5 Brown Backs from this state, three of which are called CU. It's highly unlikely that any are the equal of this superlative example, which is perfectly centered on both front and back, brilliantly colored, and displays bold pen signatures as bright as the day they were applied at the bank. Gem Crisp Uncirculated, a wonderful Michigan trophy item fit for the finest of collections.
