    Mellon National Bank of Pittsburgh, PA, Charter #6301. 1902 $5 Third Charter Plain Back, Fr-598, XF. This bright and beautiful note appears CU at first glance. There are three very light folds on this well centered and clean note from this big bank owned by the prominent Mellon family. The signatures were engraved on the printing plate, as was done for other large banks that issued millions of notes. Note the A prefix on the bank serial number at the lower left. As the numbering only went up to 1,000,000, when the bank went past that number the A was added and they went back to 1 again. This bank actually issued a second sheet of number one notes, that one with the A prefix. We don't remember ever seeing one, and that would be a great note. This is a perfect note for someone who desires a high grade note for type as this is a common bank with many notes known, albeit not all in such a nice state of preservation.
