    Serial Number 1 Private Name $5 Brown Back

    Sandusky, OH - $5 1882 Brown Back Fr. 466 The Moss NB Ch. # 2810
    If ever a $5 Brown Back had everything a collector could desire, this is it. This note comes from a private name bank which issued Brown Backs only, offers a great layout found only on $5 Brown Backs, is signed by the family of the organizers of the bank, Charles H. Moss and A.H. Moss, and displays the seldom seen first type Brown Back design. We might also mention that in addition to these attributes, it is a serial number 1 example from the "A" position, the first note from the first sheet sent to this bank. While a handful of light folds are present, they are barely visible and likely came from storage over the years, as there is no trace whatever of any real circulation here. PCGS Very Fine 35, a marvelous item worthy of the very finest of collections.
