    Saint Louis, MO - $10 1875 Fr. 419 The Merchants NB Ch. # 1501
    This short lived St. Louis bank issued First Charters and Brown Backs only before liquidating in 1895 to join forces with the Laclede National Bank to form the Merchants-Laclede NB. Incidentally, the building erected as the original headquarters of the Laclede NB, which eventually housed the merged institutions, survives and today is the home of the downtown St. Louis Hilton hotel. Three pieces from the Merchants NB are listed in the census including this note which was once part of the Eric P. Newman Collection. While this First Charter $10 has some light stains, it shows clear pen signatures, pleasing color, and is otherwise sound. A true rarity and a great note for the next collection it enters. PCGS Apparent Very Fine 30.
