    First Ever Public Offering

    Beckley, WV - $10 1902 Red Seal Fr. 613 The First NB Ch. # (S)6735
    A fantastic new discovery which is offered here for the first time to the numismatic community. It comes from perhaps the rarest West Virginia bank we've ever had the privilege of selling, as this Beckley institution was in business for only four years, issuing a miniscule 521 sheets of Red Seals only before bowing out in 1907. Track & Price and the Gengerke records indicate this note is unique, while the Kelly census shows one other note extant, but one thing everyone is in agreement on is that no note from this bank has ever appeared at public sale. Fortunately for collectors, this is a beautiful piece, with bright white paper, a flashy red overprint, and pen signatures of the Asst. Cashier and the Vice President. PCGS Extremely Fine 45PPQ, a great West Virginia rarity destined to make one collector very happy tonight.
