Goldberg Auctioneers / The Pre-Long Beach Auction (#62) - 30/01/2011 / The Pannier Coll. of Large & Small Size National Notes from Orange County, CA / Lot 2670
1902, $10 National Bank Note. The First NB, Santa Ana, CA. PCGS Very Good 10 While this incredible rarity is from a common bank, it is an important offering as the only known Red Seal from any bank in Orange County. Its importance as such cannot be overstated, as Red Seals were printed on three Orange County banks but none but this piece have survived. It is moderately circulated but basically free of any problems, and grade is likely irrelevant on a rarity of this scale. While the Kelly reference suggests a value in the range of our estimate, we would not be at all surprised if spirited bidding resulted in a hammer price well into five figures. Estimated Value $4,000 - 6,000.
