    Extremely Rare First Charter Portland, Oregon Note

    Portland, OR - $10 1875 Fr. 416 The First NB Ch. # 1553
    A great Oregon note which is newly discovered and offered here to the collecting community for the first time. It comes from one of only two banks in the entire state to have issued First Charter notes, and this offering represents the first time any such example from Portland has been available to collectors since 1981, when the second of the two examples known was last offered at public sale. With both of the previously recorded pieces having been in strong hands during the past three decades, expect some spirited bidding before the hammer falls on this significant Oregon rarity. PCGS Apparent Fine 15, with some very minor splits that truly affect nothing, as the colors, signatures, and overall appearance here are those of a very nice Fine specimen.
