A bank note has been uncovered that is being called the “Holy Grail” of paper money discoveries.

Collectors have long wondered if a Brown Back national bank note from Alaska would ever be uncovered.

A serial number 1 note from Juneau was on display for the first time in paper money history at the Memphis International Paper Money Show. Founder of the National Bank Note Foundation Andrew Shiva, owner of the note, talks about its significance.

Included are also comments from Lyn Knight, owner of the Memphis Paper Show along with other paper money dealers at the convention.

Since its inception in 1977, the International Paper Money Show is known only as “Memphis” to the fraternity of collectors and dealers that cherishes this time-honored tradition as the granddaddy of our hobby.

The biggest and the best of all currency collectors have made the trek to Mecca – I mean Memphis – to share their passion for paper money. It is that passion and the treasure hunt for notes, educational events, meetings, SPMC breakfast, bourse floor, auctions, exhibits and camaraderie that keep collectors coming back.
