    Rare Vermont Original Series $20

    Saint Albans, VT - $20 Original Fr. 427a The Vermont NB Ch. # 1583
    A spectacular Vermont note that represents not only a very rare type and denomination for the state but it is also one of only two notes reported from this excessively rare Saint Albans charter. The Vermont National opened in this northern Vermont community in 1865 (shortly after the infamous Confederate Saint Albans raid) and failed in 1883. To date, just two notes are reported - an Original Series $10 in a PMG Choice Fine 15 holder that fetched almost $9,000 at auction in 2016 and this Original Series $20 that is making its first public appearance this evening. This offering is also one of only three examples of this type and denomination reported for all of Vermont and the first of that trio to cross the auction block since 2002. It has a tape repaired split but, otherwise, is quite attractive for the grade with boldly printed details and a sharp red overprint. PMG Choice Fine 15 Net.
