    Rare Gainesville $5 Brown Back

    Gainesville, FL - $5 1882 Brown Back Fr. 470 The First NB Ch. # (S)3894
    There are only four Brown Backs documented on this Alachua County bank. Also, Brown Backs on this charter number have only appeared three times at auction since 1981. The last time was in 2006 when a lower grade $5 Brown Back brought $7475. The signatures on this rare note were in two different colors before wearing almost entirely away. This is still a rare type on this bank and even the state. Fine.
