In one of the most amazing discoveries in the past decade in National Bank Notes, GreatCollections is set to auction a unique pair of Serial #1 $50 and $100 Brown Back notes, issued by the Nevada National Bank of San Francisco in 1882.
Originally printed in pairs, the two notes on offer only recently surfaced. Only eight $50 Brown Backs are known for all banks in California, while eleven are known for the $100 denomination. This pair are the only serial number 1 versions for the whole State of California.
Both notes have been graded VF-30 EPQ (Exceptional Paper Quality) by PMG. They exhibit original fresh colors.
GreatCollections will auction the notes individually, unreserved, with bidding to end on Sunday, June 24, 2018.
Viewing: By appointment at GreatCollections Irvine headquarters and also at the Long Beach Coin Expo, table 822, June 14-16, 2018.View the Discovery San Francisco Bank Notes at GreatCollections
