    Serial Number 1 Vermont Brown Back

    Poultney, VT - $5 1882 Brown Back Fr. 477 The First NB Ch. # (N)2545
    Serial number 1 Vermont notes of any kind are few and far between, with this piece one of only five number 1 Brown Backs extant from all banks in the state combined. It is the sole such example from this scarce Poultney bank, which issued large notes only and has just a half dozen representatives in the census. Last offered in 2006, this attractive piece fetched $9200, and we see little reason it should not bring a similar amount this evening. PMG Very Fine 20 Net, with a couple of minor repaired splits and a hint of ink burn at the cashier's signature.
