    Only Note Ever Offered from The Commerical National Bank of Salt Lake

    Salt Lake City, UT - $10 1882 Brown Back Fr. 487 The Commercial NB Ch. # (P)4051
    Twelve banks issued National Bank Notes in Salt Lake City. Two of them are unreported, and three are extremely rare, with three or fewer known survivors. This is one of the exceptionally rare banks. It was chartered in 1889 and was liquidated just 20 years later. The Continental National Bank assumed its circulation and likely had a hand in driving out its notes by sending them back to Washington. Among the competing census information, we will take the lower of the two, which reports just three known examples. We are dismissing the other as it has at least one note listed outside the known issued serial numbers. The census means very little to bidders, who want the bank, as this is still the only note to have been offered. It is a lovely Brown Back with vivid colors and full margins. PMG Very Fine 25.
