    Greeneville, TN- State Stock Bank of Tennessee $10 Jan'y 1, 1857 G4a Garland 324 Proof PCGS Superb Gem New 67PPQ.
    Only a few banks operated under the state's Free Banking law, with this being one of them - if it, in fact, ever opened. There was one example of the $10, part of a single uncut sheet of $5-$5-$10-$20 (lot 1888), in the 1990 ABNCo Archives sale. The hinges on the back of this note were a hallmark of being owned by D.C. Wismer and there is a $5 known with the same hinges. This suggests perhaps another sheet was around. It is therefore possible that the population of surviving proof examples could be as small as two $10s. This note is a real beauty with a dark brick red protector and a lighter overall tint. PCGS notes that the example is mounted on cardstock and has the usual small POCs in the signature lines. Combine this visual appeal with the probable rarity and superlative condition and you have a winner.
