Question: Higgins was a used car dealer. He

Higgins was a used car dealer. He purchased a Corvette, giving the seller a draft drawn by him on the First State Bank of Albertville in the amount of $8,115. This draft was later presented by the seller to the bank for payment. Meanwhile, Higgins sold the car to Holsonback, who paid with a draft on the Albertville National Bank in the amount of $8,225. When the Albertville National Bank requested Holsonback to pay the draft, he refused, claiming that there was a problem with the certificate of title. The issue was raised as to whether, under the Uniform Commercial Code, negotiable instruments can be issued conditionally.
