    Extremely Rare West Virginia Ace

    Wheeling, WV - $1 Original Fr. 380 The First NB Ch. # 360
    An extremely rare West Virginia type and denomination from a scarce West Virginia bank. Just three notes are known from this institution, which issued Original Series First Charters only before liquidating in 1875. Aside from this note, the Gengerke data shows no offerings of any kind from here since an appearance on a Hickman and Waters fixed price list thirty-six years ago. Any First Charter ace from West Virginia is a rare note indeed, with the Kelly census showing just five other examples from all banks combined, with the highest grade listed as Fine. This is quite likely the nicest ace known from the state. Full margins frame solid paper and a bright red seal and serial numbers. The signatures of Cashier Adams and President Wheat remain bold. PMG Very Fine 25.
