    Serial Number 1 Oklahoma Territory- Unique With This Title

    Alva, OT - $10 1882 Brown Back Fr. 490 The Exchange NB Ch. # 5587
    One of the most significant Territorials in this fantastic collection. It is one of only nine serial number 1 Territorial examples from all Oklahoma Territory banks combined, and it is the only note extant bearing this Alva bank's first title, which was used for only a little over two years and can be found only on the first 184 sheets of Territorials this bank circulated. We sold a slightly lower grade Territorial example from this bank bearing the more common second title two years ago for $25,300, making any estimate for this unique note just a guess. Pen signed Very Fine, a true trophy item which has been off the market since it last appeared as part of the J.L. Irish collection sale in August of 1997.
