Unique Alaska Brown Back discovery

Coinweek has another article online with a great discovery made at the Memphis International Paper Money Show. It is the only known "Territory of Alaska" $10 Series of 1882 Brown Back note issued by The First National Bank of Juneau. There are only two reported "Territory of Alaska" notes now known: this $10 Series of 1882 Brown Back and a $20 Series of 1882 Date Back discovered in St. Louis in 1977. This Brown Back note has serial number 1 which makes it even more special.

This is probably what every collector dreams about finding when they start cleaning the attic of their grandparents.
