    Serial Number 1 Red Seal-One of Two Large Notes Known From the Bank

    West Middlesex, PA - $10 1902 Red Seal Fr. 613 The First NB Ch. # (E)6913
    A great serial number 1 Red Seal with every attribute a collector could desire. It is only the second large note reported from this Mercer County issuer and the sole Red Seal, with the one other example known being a Fine Blue Seal, which has not been seen since its sole auction appearance sixteen years ago. This piece, along with its companion from Farrell, PA offered above, came from the estate of F.S. Fish, who signed this note as the bank's cashier before ascending to the presidency of the First National Bank of Farrell, and is being offered here to the collecting fraternity for the very first time. Having seen this note before it entered its PCGS holder, we can only wonder why the most trivial of handling marks caused the grading service to assign a grade of Choice About New 58PPQ rather than Choice or Gem New, but whatever the technical grade, this beautifully embossed and utterly original serial number 1 note is certain to delight its fortunate new owner.
