    Rare Small Ferrum Note

    Ferrum, VA - $5 1929 Ty. 1 The First NB Ch. # 12311
    This note, from the sole issuer in this Franklin County community, is one of the real prizes of the Brooks collection. It comes from a bank which has had only two appearances at public sale during the past sixty years, and one from which all of the known survivors have been jealously held by long term collectors for decades. Only one example has been available since 1989, with that note, part of the Hough collection which we sold last year, realizing $2250 against a pre-sale estimate of $1250-1750. This example is not quite so nice, but collectors, many of whom have been waiting for years to add a note from here to their collections, should not pass up this rare opportunity. Fine.
    From the Elvin Miller collection in 1984.
