    First Ever Public Offering

    Batesville, AR - $10 1902 Red Seal Fr. 615 The Maxfield NB Ch. # (S)8864
    The first of the great rarities to be offered from this wonderful collection, with this piece coming from a very short lived institution which was in business for less than five years before bowing out in 1912. This private name title was the first adopted here, and one which lasted for a mere six months. Although the census lists two notes extant with this title, the second piece is listed without a grade or serial numbers of any kind, and may well be a duplicate listing to this piece. This auction marks the first time any note from this bank with this title has been offered to the collecting fraternity at public sale, and it is a testimony to the greatness of this collection that it contains Red Seals bearing both of the titles used here. This Red Seal bears the pen signatures of Baxter Thomas as Cashier and the bank's namesake, Theodore Maxfield, as President. Very Good-Fine, with a few minor flaws but excellent color and appearance for the grade.
