    Rare & Beautiful Omaha Red Seal

    Omaha, NE - $5 1902 Red Seal Fr. 588 The Omaha NB Ch. # (W)1633
    We sold this note back in 2005 as part of the Thomas Wolfe collection, commenting then "A beautiful Red Seal which is one of the highlights of the Thomas Wolfe collection. It's one of just four Red Seals known on the bank and certainly as nice as any, having been encapsulated and assigned a grade of CGA Gem Uncirculated 65. Expect this note, which displays brilliant colors and great pen signatures, to easily reach and likely exceed our estimate of $3,000-$5,000." It reached $3105 at that offering, and has been off the market since. The number of Red Seals known from this bank has remained at four, and this note is now in a PCGS Choice About New 58PPQ holder, but, whatever its technical grade, it remains one of the loveliest $5 Red Seals we've ever offered.
