    Ephrata, PA - $5 1882 Brown Back Fr. 473 The Farmers NB Ch. # 4923
    We sold this note in September of 2006, commenting "This lovely Brown Back is a significant note in many respects, as it is one of the very nicest early examples known from this none too common Lancaster County institution. It also bears the very rare Rosecrans-Morgan signature combination, which, according to the latest Gengerke compilation, is found on only about 20 $5 Brown Backs from all issuers combined. This piece has been off the market since our consignor obtained it in a May, 1996 Stack's auction, where it was graded Extremely Fine. While fold counters may differ, we agree that any grade lower than Extremely Fine for this pen signed beauty would be a true disservice." It brought $3220 then and should be worth just as much, if not more, tonight.
