Rough, but a tougher bank to find.

14 notes known on the bank. This one is a new pickup. Culver City, the city where my wife & I shared our first weekend together in 2007. I like to think a film star used this for lunch, circa 1930.

This one sold north of $700 on Heritage in 2012, had my eye on it at the time, and it finally reappeared. I have only seen one on eBay in the past ten years, a $10.

Appearances aren't too common. Culver City only issued notes in 1930, and they elected not to issue large size notes despite being chartered in 1920.

    Cool note and backstory.
    The upper edge trauma looks like it was torn, not cut, from the sheet.

    You are correct, I never actually considered why the amount of wear in the top margin is the way it is!
