    Rare 1902 $100 Red Seal National

    Saint Louis, MO - $100 1902 Red Seal Fr. 686 The Third NB Ch. # (M)170
    An extremely rare National Bank Note type, with the latest census reporting barely 120 examples from all banks in the United States combined. Six of that number hail from this prolific St. Louis issuer, none of which have crossed the auction block since 1997. This is a moderately circulated piece with good signatures and decent color for the grade, but it does have some edge and internal splits as well as some heavy staining on the back and it now resides in a PCGS Apparent Fine 15 holder. This is still a very undervalued type and denomination, although values have risen substantially during the past fifteen years.
