    Scarce St. Louis $50 Brown Back

    Saint Louis, MO - $50 1882 Brown Back Fr. 515 The Continental National Bank Ch. # 4048 PMG Very Good 10 Net.
    Brown Backs only from this tougher St. Louis bank, with fives, fifties and hundreds only being issued. Just four fifties, including this example, are enumerated in the census, one of which is listed without a grade. This piece has seen its share of circulation and has had some repairs, but faces up quite nicely for its assigned grade. It is a more than acceptable example of this very scarce type and denomination.
