Newly Discovered Laramie City Ace Note at GreatCollections

Recently Discovered Laramie City Ace Note - Found in a Family Bible

Fr. 382a $1 Original The Wyoming NB Laramie City, Wyoming Territory CH# 2110 Allison/Spinner PMG Fine 12

Unreserved at GreatCollections.  Bidding ends Sunday, February 18th.

This newly discovered Wyoming ace becomes the fourth known original series note for the state of Wyoming. One of only five known original series notes known on the state, four of which are aces with one two Dollar note known as well. The entire state reports only 16 territorial notes on all banks, in all series.

This note joins the following three notes known as follows: The serial number 921, Plate C, note sold by Stacks in 2010 as part of the Q. David Bowers collection was graded VF-30 by PMG and realized $74, 750.00. Another recently discovered note graded VG-10 NET by PMG mentioning a repaired split, Serial number 936 plate A, was sold by Heritage in 2012 for $ 30,550.00. The only other note known was last seen in 1997 When Lyn Knight sold it as part of the J.L. Irish Collection of territorials. That note, serial number 904 Plate C, is graded Fine 15 in the census. It realized $ 14,300 over 20 years ago and has not been seen since.

The current offering, Serial number 940 Plate C, is a wholesome and very pleasing PMG F-12 with no major distractions, just honest wear. It shows good margins for a note of this series. Like the other known notes, it has a gorgeous vanity signature of the cashier, likely Chauncey B. Root. Original series aces are avidly collected. The three above mentioned notes are in strong hands leaving this note as possibly the only one available for the foreseeable future. Take advantage of what could be a once in a generation opportunity!
