    Serial Number 1 Broken Bow-The Only Serial Number 1 1882 Date Back Known From Nebraska

    Broken Bow, NE - $5 1882 Date Back Fr. 537 The Custer NB Ch. # (W)5995
    Second Charter notes only from this scarce bank, which lasted for only fifteen years between it organization in 1901 and its dissolution in 1916. This is the only collectible bank in Broken Bow, a small community which is less than 10 miles from the geographic center of Nebraska. The town, which is the Custer County seat, was platted in 1882, and took its name from a broken bow found at a nearby old indian campground. Our consignor has long treasured this note, which is not only the sole number 1 example known from this bank but is the only serial number 1 1882 Date Back of any denomination known from the entire state of Nebraska. PMG Fine 12 Net, with the Net grade assigned solely due to some tape on the corners, a great Nebraska rarity if ever there was one.
