    Description

    Pittsburgh, PA - $5 1882 Brown Back Fr. 477 The Fort Pitt NB Ch. # (E)2415
    This is a lovely example from a truly scarce Pittsburgh bank which issued First Charters and Brown Backs only before the receiver arrived to close the doors forever in December of 1907. The census lists only seven specimens of all kinds extant, with this $5 Brown Back certainly among the very finest. It's a classic "three fold uncirculated" example, with blazing originality and loads of easy to discern embossing. It was graded as "Choice AU" in its last auction offering in 1995, and we can easily understand why. Extremely Fine+++, a beautiful piece worth every dollar it brings tonight.
