    Serial Number 5 McGill Small Size Note

    McGill, NV - $20 1929 Ty. 2 The McGill NB Ch. # 9452 PCGS Gem New 65PPQ.
    A lovely note from perhaps the rarest sheet ever to be cut, considering that only 2 1/2 sheets (15 pieces) of Type 2 Twenties were issued by this bank. The sheet had been purchased in the 1930's by George Blake, acting as an agent for Col. E.H.R. Green, one of America's richest men and a collector/accumulator of sheets. The sheet resurfaced in Lester Merkin's 1971 sale of well over 100 uncut sheets, when it brought a record price and was almost immediately cut. All of these notes have been very closely held over the years, with appearances few and far between. Four wide margins surround this well embossed and well preserved note that appears to have been cut from the sheet this morning rather than almost 50 years ago. It is a wonderful note fit for the finest of collections. From all the data available from the population reports, this note is the finest of those cut from the sheet.
