Superb Gem New 67PPQ Serial Number 1- One of Two Known From the Town

Cawker City, KS - $5 1882 Brown Back Fr. 472 The Farmers & Merchants NB Ch. # 4618
We've now had the opportunity to offer both notes known from this incredibly rare Kansas location. As we noted when we sold the other example almost three years ago "An incredible Kansas rarity from a bank which issued Brown Backs only between its organization in 1891 and its demise in 1896. Only $5 notes were issued, and, by 1910, a miniscule $285 was left outstanding. This is one of two examples known on the bank. Both are serial number 1 Brown Backs, and, with the other piece in extremely strong hands, it is very likely that this offering represents the only opportunity collectors might ever have to add a note from this bank (or town) to their holdings. Luckily for collectors, it combines condition with rarity, with spectacular colors, extraordinary paper quality, and bold pen signatures of Lincoln Paris and U.C. Paris. Extremely Fine, a wonderful Kansas trophy item worthy of the very finest of collections." That piece realized $23,000. Now imagine a $5 Brown Back which is literally perfect in all respects, grading Superb Gem New 67PPQ. If ever a note combining the ultimate in condition along with exceptional bank rarity demanded superlatives, this is it. Whatever the price realized tonight, the lucky collector who takes this note home will never regret this purchase...the note is that incredible.
