    Little Rock, AR- Bank of the State of Arkansas $50 18__ G48 Rothert 400-4 Proof
    Liberty, with a seemingly catastrophic wardrobe malfunction, joins Mercury and three medallion heads on this $5 demand note datelined Little Rock but designed to be payable at any of the bank's branches. The Bank of the State of Arkansas was truly a state bank, with the stock all held by the state. It opened in 1837 and, after suspending specie payments in 1839, made a quick journey to receivership by 1843. This pretty note on snow white paper grades PCGS Choice New 63 with no qualifiers.
