    Arkansas Post, AR- Bank of the State of Arkansas $5 Jan. 3, 1839 G62 Rothert 18-2
    A virtual duplicate to the example in our October Newman Auction, described there as "A rare and interesting type payable at Arkansas Post, where the first territorial legislature met. A beautifully engraved note by Draper, Toppan, Longacre & Co. In the vignette at top center, flanked by identical 5 counters, a Native American man stands on a rocky mountaintop holding up some stalks of wheat. End panels show FIVE above and 5 below with framed portraits in the center: Franklin wearing his fur cap at left, and Washington at right. A significant, fully issued note in excellent grade. PCGS Very Fine 20." That note fetched $940, with the note we offer here grading PCGS Apparent Very Fine 25, with a small hinge-repaired edge split more than offset by the fact that this example serves as the Rothert plate note.
