    Ex-Grinnell Wyoming Brown Back

    Laramie, WY - $10 1882 Brown Back Fr. 487 The First NB Ch. # (W)4989
    Another terrific Brown Back with a wonderful pedigree, from the 1946 Grinnell sale (where it was lot 3457) to R.F. Schermerhorn and Bill Bailey, thence to Bob Medlar in 1971, where it became part of his magnificent collection of Brown Backs, to our consignor when the Medlar collection was auctioned in 1987. At that sale it realized $2520, a very strong price for those days. Expect it to go for more, in fact considerably more, this evening. Pen signed Very Fine, a great note in all respects. Est. 7,500-12,500
