    Casper Wyoming Red Seal

    Casper, WY - $20 1902 Red Seal Fr. 639 The Casper NB Ch. # (W)6850
    The Casper National Bank was chartered in June of 1903, just in time to issue Red Seals. It was the first bank to open its doors in Natrona County, and one of only two to survive through the end of the note issuing period in national banking. To date, only about 16 Red Seals are known from all banks in Wyoming, including this lone Red Seal from this bank. The overprint remains quite bright, and the delicately penned signature are still jet black. The paper is quite bright for the grade, though PCGS indicates some small tears, at the edge and internally. Some rust flecks are also mentioned, but are restricted mostly to the back of the note. In this note's last outing at public auction in 2006, it realized $33,350. It could well meet or exceed that price again tonight as Track & Price indicates the most recent realization of a Wyoming Red Seal, a Douglas $10, was $34,500 in October of 2009. PCGS Apparent Very Fine 20.
