    New Bern, NC - $5 1929 Ty. 1 The First NB Ch. # 13298 PMG Very Good 10 Net.
    Talk about short-lived...this bank came and went within seven months of receiving its charter in early 1929. The bank issued Series 1929 examples only, with a minuscule 184 sheets printed in the $5 denomination. Although four notes are listed in the census, the whereabouts of two of the four are unknown, with no record of grade or prior appearances during the past six decades. This note, which made its lone prior public appearance in our 2010 Memphis auction, has seen its share of circulation yet it still maintains an attractive appearance with just a small repair that is very well done.
