    Huntsville, TX - $5 1882 Brown Back Fr. 471 The Gibbs NB Ch. # 4208
    This is one of the great private named banks in the state. The Gibbs family would manage this bank for many years. There are only three Brown Backs in the census for this charter number. Two of those Brown Backs are $5s, the current example, plus the one locked away in the Philpott/Moody Foundation Collection. The latter note grades only Fair and for Philpott to have collected a low-grade note, it shows just how truly rare this type is on this Walker County bank. The note offered tonight grades PCGS Very Good 8 and it exhibits a dark penned signature of President W.S. Gibbs that far exceeds what is usually expected at this grade level.
