    Very Rare Private Name Bank

    Fredericksburg, VA - $5 1882 Date Back Fr. 537 The Conway, Gordon & Garnett NB Ch. # (S)5268
    One of the great private name titles to be found on any National, and a truly rare bank which issued only Brown Backs and Date Backs as well. Only three examples are recorded in the Kelly census, with the last one to sell (not nearly as nice as this piece) bringing $2000 in a substantially weaker market five years ago. Fine-Very Fine, with a tiny margin split barely worthy of mention more than offset by the P.V.D. Conway as President.
    Bought by Emmett at a farm auction in Towson, Maryland in 1980, the existence of which he was unaware of until informed by his friend Armand Shank, Jr. as he was eating dinner. Excusing himself, he jumped into his car, found the auction site, and arrived just in time to buy this note.
