    Unique for the Bank and the Town in Small Size

    Woodmere, NY - $20 1929 Ty. 1 The Hewlett-Woodmere National Bank Ch. # 12294 PMG Very Fine 30.
    Your cataloger has had the pleasure of handling virtually every rarity from the state of New York as both a collector since 1968 and a dealer since 1971. We have cataloged literally thousands of notes from the Empire State, and have sold all of the major Long Island collections that have been dispersed in recent years...but Series 1929 examples from this bank have eluded us until tonight. Although a couple of early censuses have listed a pair of Series 1929 examples, further research has proven those listings are incorrect, with both of the reported serial numbers far outside the range of the few notes issued by this institution. Our own records also indicate no prior appearances at public sale of any small size note from this bank. For collectors of Series 1929 notes from New York, notes from this Nassau County bank are the "Holy Grail," with this offering the first opportunity any collector has ever had to own even one small note from this issuer. Very fortunately, the note offered here is an evenly circulated and problem free specimen which is certain to satisfy even the most discriminating of collectors. If rarity and demand are any guide, our estimate may well prove conservative in the extreme.
