    The Haxby and Rothert Plate Example

    Batesville, AR- Bank of the State of Arkansas $10 Jan. 4, 1839 G122 Rothert 31-2
    An extremely rare example which serves as a plate note in both the Haxby and Rothert references. It comes from a state owned bank which was so mismanaged that its failure, along with that of the Real Estate Bank of Arkansas, produced an 1846 amendment to the Arkansas state constitution that read "No bank or banking institution shall be hereafter incorporated or established in this state," making Arkansas a bank-free zone from 1846 until the establishment of its first national bank in 1866. Very Fine, with a bit of penned graffiti on the right side.
