    One of Three Large

    Port Allegany, PA - $20 1882 Brown Back Fr. 497 The First NB Ch. # (E)3877
    This is a rare bank with a paltry three large notes documented and this example is the only $20 Brown Back. Also, this note on this McKean County bank is the equal of or higher grade than any other graded large or small note in the census. With the population figures so low, it is not surprising that the last large sold on this bank was by us in 2000. A few minute edge splits are noticed, but overall this is a problem free note for the grade that also exhibits bold signatures. Very Fine.
