    Bentonville, AR- R. Harston & Co. 50¢ Feb. 10, 1862 Rothert UNL (as 60-2) PMG Very Fine 25.
    This note was issued eight days before Bentonville was attacked and ultimately burned by a Union strike force on February 18, 1862. Rothert's listing for a 50¢ note from this issuer indicates that "bearer" is misspelled as "bearir". This example does not contain that error and is therefore a different variety that is unlisted. A cursory search of census records does not produce a match, but it is assumed that Harston was either a merchant or private banker of some type.
