    Rare Virginia First Charter Five

    Winchester, VA - $5 Original Fr. 397 The Shenandoah Valley NB Ch. # 1635
    A very rare note which is one of only thirty-nine recorded First Charter examples from the state listed in the new Kelly First Charter census, with only three of that total coming from this well collected location. When one considers the devastation of this community and the valley itself in the aftermath of the Civil War, the survival of any early note from this bank, which was chartered in 1866, becomes even more of a miracle. Nice Fine, a great piece worthy of a strong bid.
