    Serial Number 5 McGill Small Size Note

    McGill, NV - $20 1929 Ty. 2 The McGill NB Ch. # 9452
    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 1971, 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. This piece, for example, made its last public appearance almost ten years ago with only one other low serial number example crossing the auction block since that time. Four wide margins surround this well embossed and well preserved note that appears to have been cut from the sheet this morning rather than over 40 years ago. PCGS Gem New 65PPQ, a great note likely to bring a record price considering the demand for better Nevada material.
