    Serial Number 1 $5 Arkansas Red Seal- Unique for the State

    Fort Smith, AR - $5 1902 Red Seal Fr. 589 The American NB Ch. # (S)3634
    This new to the census piece represents an extraordinary find, as it is one of only four serial number 1 Red Seals extant from the entire state and the sole $5 example. This is the only number 1 Red Seal from Arkansas ever offered at public sale, as the other three pieces have long been ensconced in major collections and are unlikely to be offered within the foreseeable future. Fortunately for collectors, this specimen displays bright white paper, a strong red overprint, and clear signatures along with considerable eye appeal. Any estimate here is just a surmise, but if rarity and desirability combined produce their usual result, expect this attractive Very Fine example to certainly reach and perhaps well exceed...
