    Pleasing Port Lavaca, Texas $20 Brown Back

    Port Lavaca, TX - $20 1882 Brown Back Fr. 504 The First National Bank Ch. # (S)5367 PCGS Very Fine 30.
    A rare note from this Gulf Coast community, it is one of just seven reported survivors from this bank that closed in 1923. However, of those seven pieces in the census, three of the seven are permanently impounded in institutional collections. Therefore, this pretty $20 Brown Back is one of just four notes available to the collecting fraternity. The colors are exceptional as are the strong penned signatures on this evenly circulated example.
