This lazy deuce is printed on blue end paper. I can't imagine finding a much nicer note for the grade. Worthy of a premium bid.

This is certainly one of the more interestingly named bank titles in the country. Only a half dozen fifties are known to exist.

The top center fold of this note has a quarter inch split. Don't let that deter you from adding a quality South Dakota brown back to your collection.

Big Lake, MN - Ch. 11611 - $5 1902 Blue Seal The only time a note from Big Lake was offered for sale it sold for $7,500. That note was a grade nicer, but it also sold in 2010 near the bottom of the market. Today there are far more players for good Minnesota national banknotes and I would wager that the next chance to obtain one of these won't be for many years to come. The discovery of this example brings the total tally for this one bank town to three notes.

Annona, TX - Ch. 7257 - 1902 $20 Plain Back This is just the fourth large size note to be documented from The First National Bank of Annona. All four notes are blue seals. The only auction result is for a note listed as VF/XF and it sold for $4,100 in 1998; that was a tremendous amount of money for any national banknote. Now, 17 years later, I would expect there to be a long list of collectors looking to add this town to their holdings. Pen signatures and crispy paper are worthy of mention.
