    Arkansas Post, AR- Bank of the State of Arkansas $5 Jan. 17, 1839 Rothert 18-1
    Rothert notes that the origins of this community date to 1686, when Henri de Tonti established a fort (or "post") to assist the survivors of La Salle's ill-fated exploration party. In 1819, the first Territorial legislature held its inaugural session at Arkansas Post, and the community, laid out on the banks of the Arkansas River, thrived so long as the river remained a major trade artery. With the advent of the railroads, the town faded, and today is remembered only by a state historical marker in a state park on the site of the old community. The branch where this note might have been issued appears never to have been filled in. Fine or a bit better, with a miniscule corner repair.
