Beckley, WV - Ch. 6735 - $10 1902 Red Seal The First National Bank of Beckley opened in 1903 and closed in 1907. If you know your national banknotes, then you will instantly recognize that as a red seal only bank. 1902 red seals were issued between March 1902 and December 1908. For a bank to be a "red seal only bank" it had to open and close between that threshold.

New York, NY - Ch. 733 - $10 1902 Blue Seal We were fortunate enough to handle this note before it was encapsulated. I honestly don't think I have ever handled a higher grade or more original blue seal date back. The charter number embossing is easily visible on the back of the note even to the naked eye through the holder. This note comes from the same collection as the six consecutive black eagles shown earlier in the catalog.

This plain back is dated as 1922, but you can tell from the matching treasury and bank serial numbers that it was actually issued in the second half of the decade. It is perfect for the STL or state blue seal collector.

As we will be saying often today, here is yet another great addition to the national banknote census. This blue seal from De Funiak Springs was recently discovered in Maryland and consigned to our sale. It is now one of nine large notes known for this one bank town. Nine is simply not enough to go around. Expect this rarity to sell within the auction estimate.

None of the three large size notes from Stanley, Virginia have ever traded hands at a public auction. This was the sole bank in Stanley. So if you need a large example then today's offering might be your only chance to acquire one for a very long time. The note here is clearly well circulated with its most severe condition offense only being a half inch split in the bottom margin.

Any time you can say "this note hasn't been offered since Grinnell" then you know you are dealing with a good one. This serial number one red seal is an absolute peach. The blue serial numbers and red overprints are as bright as the day they were printed. And I can safely say that the last auction realization of $18 (from 1946) will definitely be topped.

There were 648 different banks in Ohio that issued national currency. Only one of those banks was in Okeana. Today only eight other large size notes are documented as still existing from it. This new discovery is from The M&M hoard and it becomes the oldest note on the bank.

Here is another great Ohio note from today's auction. It is the top note from a date back sheet. The First National Bank of Senecaville was the only national bank in town. Just over a dozen blue seals are documented. From the Selvage Yard Collection.

A large size Manassas note from this charter has not been auctioned in the 21st century. And for the record, some significant Virginia holdings have been dispersed in that time period. There are just eight other large survivors known to exist. Those eight are clearly closely held. The note offered here has good signatures and looks close to a VF. The left margin has three splits and there is a less than half inch internal paper split present.
