    Extremely Rare $50 Original

    Pittsburgh, PA - $50 Original Fr. 440 The Third NB Ch. # 291
    Omitting National Gold Bank Notes, which are truly a separate type, the National Bank Note Census counts a mere 26 Original Series $50 Notes from all banks in the country combined. A couple reside in institutional collections, reducing the number available to collectors even further. Only two, including this example, are known from Pennsylvania. Like many of these early notes, there are a couple of repairs, which can be found on the bottom margin with diligent searching, but the note is actually quite nice looking, with bright colors, a strong overprint, and plenty of eye appeal. PMG Very Fine 25 Net, a perfect example to represent this excessively rare type and denomination.
