    Frankfort, KY - Farmers Bank of Kentucky First Series Genuine & Counterfeit Comparison Pair $5 1850 KY-100 Design 5A Mixed Grades.
    A third unusual comparison pair of notes with Toppan, Carpenter, Casilear & Co.. imprints, without face protectors, and plain backs. The first is a hybrid created from issued genuine halves from different notes, stitched together from the back with hinges, to compare with an accompanying counterfeit note from the Somerset branch (written) with penned signatures. Cattle scene top center. Created by a successor bank for historical archive use and on album page (notes in philatelic mounts, fully removable) with opaque descriptive overleaf. Genuine 'note," appearance of Fine with face annotation at left face and bright Fine Plus. The counterfeit as choice as we have seen and well made as noted by the archivist. Another likely unique and fascinating pair. (Total: 2 notes)
