    Unique Virginia First Charter Ace

    Norfolk, VA - $1 Original Fr. 380 The Exchange NB Ch. # 1137
    This is the note that everyone has been waiting for, the true crown jewel of the Brooks collection. It is the only First Charter ace known from Virginia, and comes from the only bank in the entire state which issued this denomination. It is utterly unique, and has been regarded as such since Elvin Miller acquired it forty years ago. Every collector who has ever collected First Charter ones by state and territory has run up against the stone wall of Virginia, as this note has never been available to collectors at public sale. This piece is, luckily for collectors, a most attractive example, with good color and signatures and no problems whatever worthy of mention, grading a pleasing Fine-Very Fine. With demand for the greatest of Nationals at an all time high, our estimate here may well prove conservative.
    Acquired from Elvin Miller in 1985.
