    Reno, NV - $50 1902 Plain Back Fr. 682 The Reno NB Ch. # 8424
    A scarce high denomination example signed as President by the legendary George Wingfield, who rose from dealing faro at a Tonopah casino to the richest man in Nevada in a five-year period from 1902 to 1907. Long associated in business and politics with U.S. Senator George S. Nixon, Wingfield moved to Reno in 1908 and became active in banking, ranching, and hotel keeping. Although much of his fortune disappeared during the Great Depression, Wingfield remained a political power in Nevada for years thereafter. High denomination notes from this bank are not terribly common, with the last example we sold a repaired Fine 12 which fetched $9987.50 three years ago. PCGS Apparent Very Fine 20, with the Apparent grade levied only due to a small inked number on the reverse which affects nothing.
