    Excessively Rare "Potatoe Neck" Note

    Potatoe Neck, MD- E Powel 6 1/4¢ April 11, 1841 Shank UNL
    A great rarity, as this metropolis and issuer are unlisted in the Maryland reference. Note the spelling of the first word of the town name, indicating that perhaps Dan Quayle was correct...or that folks in Maryland have trouble spelling as well. This was one of the highlight items in the Armand Shank sale some six years ago, when it was hammered down for $1437.50 after a bruising floor battle, and there is no reason to believe it will go for any less in this sale. Fine, a wonderful Eastern Shore item which may well prove unique.
