    Newly Reported Ansted, West Virginia Red Seal

    Ansted, WV - $20 1902 Red Seal Fr. 641 The Ansted NB Ch. # (S)8904
    A wonderful new addition to the census from the sole bank in this Fayette County community to issue. Prior to this evening, just eight large size were reported from this Ansted bank that liquidated in 1935 but four of those notes were from a cut sheet of serial number 1 Red Seals that have not been seen since they appeared in the fabled Grinnell sales of 1945. With the four other known notes being rather pedestrian Blue Seals, this newly reported specimen is easily the best note from this charter to be publicly offered in over 70 years. Evenly circulated PMG Very Fine 25, with nice color and clear signatures.
