    Outstanding Arlington, Oregon $5 Brown Back

    Arlington, OR - $5 1882 Brown Back Fr. 470 The Arlington NB Ch. # 3918
    A newly discovered Oregon rarity from Arlington's only collectible bank, as the other institution chartered here remains unknown. This bank has been represented by two nearly identical $5 Brown Backs, one of which has been off the market for the past decade with the other, formerly part of the Power collection sold in 2006, now firmly ensconced in a major Oregon holding. This piece is by far the nicest of the trio, displaying vivid colors, exceptionally bright inks, and strong pen signatures along with virtually no actual wear due to circulation. The last note sold realized almost $17,000 over three years ago, and we see no reason why this considerably superior example should not fetch an even higher figure this evening. Lovely Very Fine+++, a real Oregon trophy item worthy of the very finest of collections.
