Hepburn came armed with a cane, and two pistols, but MacDougald drew first and shot him dead before Hepburn fired a shot. MacDougald was arrested, but swiftly exonerated by a jury. Shortly thereafter, the bank relocated to Macon. PCGS Apparent Choice About New 58, with a couple of tiny flaws that affect nothing, along with 4 POC.
