    Finer of Two Known-First Offering Since 1986

    Hope, AR - $5 1902 Plain Back Fr. 600 The Hope NB Ch. # (S)8594
    This small Hempstead County community, the birthplace of former President Bill Clinton, was home to three issuing banks. Two are easily available to collectors, but notes from this institution, which issued large examples only, are prohibitively rare, with the census showing just two pieces extant. One is graded as "Good" and has never been offered at public sale, and this is the second. Fortunately for collectors, it is an attractive specimen with enough grade to satisfy any Arkansas aficionado. Both Track and Price and the Gengerke records show only one offering from here during the past six decades, with that coming when this note was last on the market in a 1986 auction. Very Fine, a rare opportunity not likely to be repeated any time soon.
