    Excessively Rare Tennessee 1875 $10

    Chattanooga, TN - $10 1875 Fr. 420 The Third NB Ch. # 2559
    Tonight, we are pleased to offer this great Tennessee rarity that is not only just one of two notes known from this short-lived issuer but also one of only nine 1875 10s recorded for the entire Volunteer State. The Third National opened in 1871 and then shuttered its doors forever in 1902 leaving just two survivors - this $10 and a 1875 $20 which has never appeared at public sale. Fortuitously, this is also an attractive note with balanced margins, pleasing color, and bold pen signatures. PMG has mentioned some minor edge repairs but they are not readily apparent and have no impact on this note's rarity and desirability. PMG Very Fine 25, and destined to be a highlight of the next collection it enters.
