    High Denomination Reno Large Size

    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. PMG Very Fine 25, with a comment about minor repairs which are not readily apparent.
