Complementing this exceptional Mormon rarity in the auction are four other significant Salt Lake City emitted notes. A $10 “Re-isssued” Kirtland note signed by Brigham Young is graded PCGS Very Fine 30 EPQ (lot 5253) and is one the finest seen by us since the Ford sales. Three different types of Deseret Currency Association notes are also featured. The very rare initial typeset series, pen signed by Brigham Young, is represented by a $2 denomination (lot 5254). The next series with engraved signatures features a $1 note boasting lovely paper quality and PCGS graded Very Fine 25 (lot 5255). The final series of Deseret Currency Association was engraved from copper plates with ornate vignettes. The white paper $3 note offered is exceptionally vibrant and bold (lot 5256), one of finest seen by us. This historic quintet will be a memorable offering within an exceptional session featuring 1,025 lots of important American paper currency contained within its own session catalogue.
