A couple of months ago I was at a coin show and found this $10 Bank of Lexington note. Thanks to it's condition it was relatively inexpensive. Last April I posted about the Bank Of Lexington, NC and mentioned that they had a branch in Graham, North Carolina as well and not I have a note from the Graham branch.
I had the opportunity to purchase a $5 note from the Graham branch several months earlier but didn't. Of the 6 varieties found from this bank, All 3 varieties of the $5 notes and two of the $10 notes are inexpensive and "easy" to find. It is the green $10 note which is the one that will cost a fortune. When I purchased this note I mentioned to the dealer that I would like to find a green $10 and I struck a nerve. He had a nice example of one and another dealer conned him into selling him that note which he got the shorter end of the stick.
