    Unique for the Bank-First Ever Public Offering

    Lock Haven, PA - $5 Original Fr. 397 The Lock Haven NB Ch. # 1273
    A unique note from the second of three banks chartered in this small Clinton County location. This bank failed in 1877, and by 1916, a minuscule $875 represented the entire outstanding circulation. Although this note has been in the census for some time, it has never before been offered to collectors at public sale. PCGS has noted restorations, but they are quite well executed and just about invisible through the holder. Apparent Very Fine 25, bright for the grade and possessing great eye appeal for such an early rarity.
