    Lovely Serial Number 1 McKeesport Brown Back

    McKeesport, PA - $5 1882 Brown Back Fr. 472 The NB of McKeesport Ch. # 4625
    While listed in the census for many years, this serial number 1 Brown Back is recorded without a grade, indicating that it has been of the market for many years. Luckily for collectors, it has been preserved quite nicely since it was saved over 115 years ago, with just the slightest evidence of handling present. As the "A" position note on the sheet, this truly is the "first" note issued to this bank, and is, as well, the only large size number one of any type or denomination reported from here. Pen signed Choice Crisp Uncirculated, a note which will add luster to any collection, no matter how advanced.
