    Double Serial Number 1 Gurdon Large Note

    Gurdon, AR - $5 1902 Plain Back Fr. 610 The First NB Ch. # 13210
    This double serial number 1 note is a classic Arkansas rarity in every respect, especially coming from a late charter bank which issued only 480 sheets of large size notes and had a miniscule $85 outstanding by 1935. It's the only serial number 1 note known from this bank, and it is one of only two serial number 1 Plain Backs known from all Arkansas banks in the entire state combined. This "A" position serial number 1 example is signed by Rupert A. Stuart in blue ink and Jno. N. Stuart in black, and doubtless owes its survival to the penned initials R.S. Jr 1928 which appear in the reverse margin, a thoughtful gesture by Rupert Stuart's son which preserved this note for today's generation of collectors to treasure. Very Fine-Extremely Fine, a fantastic note certain to become one of the highlights of the collection it now enters.
