    Rare Billings, MT Brown Back
    First Public Offering from this Bank Since 1997

    Billings, MT - $10 1882 Brown Back Fr. 484 The First National Bank Ch. # 3097 PMG Very Fine 20.
    A wonderful new discovery from this downright rare Yellowstone County bank, this is the first note from here to be publicly offered anywhere in almost 25 years. The First National issued Brown Backs and Red Seals only before the receiver arrived to close the doors in 1910. To date, just five notes are reported from this charter, only one of which has been publicly offered in 35 years, and that was a $5 Brown Back that we sold way back in 1997. Fortuitously for collectors, this new entrant to the census is as attractive as it is rare, displaying great color, solid margins, and just even, problem free wear. A wonderful opportunity for the Montana specialist or anyone who appreciates great Nationals.

    Estimate: $10,000 - up.
