    Excessively Rare Iowa Territorial Issue

    Dubuque, Iowa Territory- Miners Bank of Dubuque $5 G4 Oakes 2
    An excessively rare Iowa Territorial issue. This bank received its charter on November 30, 1836, when Dubuque (along with the rest of Iowa) was a part of the Wisconsin Territory (see the Wisconsin obsolete section for a pair of very rare $50 and $100 Wisconsin Territorial issues from this bank). This is the first example from Iowa Territory that we have had to offer in any CAA sale, and one of the very few such specimens known. Pleasing Very Fine, with one minor pinhole that affects little, a great obsolete note worthy of an important collection.
