National Bank Note
The First National
Bank of PHILADELPHIA
national bank is identified as
Charter – 1
aside from the rarity
national banknotes are collected because they
link a person to a place:
collector, spouse, or children
--same first or last
name of collector
of high school, college, or work
example seems to grade
EXTREMELY FINE 45 PQ
An EXCEPTIONALLY high grade for highly collectible note!
The LOWEST possible charter number available!!
Charter numbers below 100 hold a premium among collectors!
The high grade and collectible factor by being issued by the first chartered bank there was, make this note
an AMAZING and STUNNING addition to any small size paper money or national bank note collection!
by checking various sources: auction results,
dealers' fixed price lists, advertisements in numismatic trade magazines, etc
we found a
retail value of:
for this same grade!
we believe that our opening price is far below
the retail value found elsewhere; and while our starting price is
very fair, it is our intent to place quality notes into appreciative
collections at equitable prices--so we welcome reasonable counter-offers
