    Finest Large Size Reported

    Lancaster, SC - $5 1902 Plain Back Fr. 598 The First NB Ch. # (S)7858
    Another very scarce South Carolina bank that did not survive the agricultural depression of the 1920s. This charter was the sole issuer in the Peedee Region's Lancaster County and issued Third Charter notes only before liquidating and being absorbed by a state institution in 1922. To date, only seven notes are listed in the census, most of which are well circulated. This lovely piece is a happy exception and is, by far, the finest example known from here. Aside from a light center fold, it is as bright and fresh as the day it was printed and features vibrant color and deep, original embossing. Also, the pen signatures remain quite bold which is certainly quite unusual for a South Carolina National where, in most cases, the signatures are stamped and have faded away. Undoubtedly, this note was kept as a souvenir shortly after it was issued. PCGS Choice About New 58, and certainly to be a sought after item tonight.
