    Greensburg, PA - $10 1882 Brown Back Fr. 490 The First NB Ch. # (E)2558
    This Vice Presidentially signed $10 Brown Back joins nine other large notes in the census and becomes the discovery Brown Back from here. It is an aesthetically appealing Very Fine with especially vivid officers' signatures and is free from any distractions inconsistent with the assigned grade. Brown Backs seem to retain their eye appeal to a greater extent than other types regardless of their degree of circulation and this note is no exception, appearing far nicer than its purely technical grade might imply. A couple of unobtrusive margin splits at top are mentioned purely for the sake of accuracy and can hardly be regarded as detracting. While no less than four banks printed Brown Backs from this locale, only this and one other $10 are known between all four institutions combined and the population of Brown Backs from all four aggregates just four notes, two of the $5 denomination as well as this and one other $10, with each of the four banks only having a single Brown Back known. We anticipate considerable bidder interest and our estimate may well prove conservative.
