    Description

    Ashland, KY - $5 1882 Brown Back Fr. 472 The Merchants NB Ch. # 4559
    From our sale of the Bill Gale collection where the description read, "A truly rare note from the Gale holdings from a bank which issued Brown Backs only until its demise in 1906. Just two examples are known, with this considerably the finer of the pair. Bill obtained this at the Glenn Martin collection sale where he paid just over $3000. Nearly four years later, that appears to have been an awfully astute purchase." CGA Fine 12.
