    Very Rare Minneapolis $20 1902 Date Back Fr. 649a

    Minneapolis, MN - $20 1902 Date Back Fr. 649a The First & Security National Bank Ch. # (M)710 PMG Very Fine 25.
    A very rare type from an otherwise available Minneapolis bank. This moderately circulated example is one of the few Fr. 649a notes from any bank. Unlike most rare National Bank Note Friedberg number types, this one did not occur because of a change in title or denominations the bank elected was issuing. This type is rare because of a fluke in the issuing calendar, which affected only banks chartered between March 24, 1915 (when the Teehee-Burke signers assumed office together), and June 30, 1915 (the date that the Aldrich-Vreeland Act expired and all banks switched to 1902 Plain Backs), or banks which switched from 1882 Date Backs to 1902 Date Backs during that period. Very few banks fell into either category, creating a handful of known 1902 $20 Date Backs issued bearing this signature combination. An attractive note, clean surfaced and well margined. Ex: our 2020 FUN sale, lot 20811.
    From The Mike Coltrane Collection.
