    Harpers Ferry, VA- Farmers & Mechanics Bank of Harpers Ferry 12-1/2¢ Sep. 23, 1816 Jones-Littlefield UNL PMG Very Good 8.
    This was apparently an unchartered bank that was in business around 1815-1818. In 1818, the state ordered all unchartered banks to suspend operations and retire all of their circulation by August 31, 1818. The note is unlisted in both Haxby and Jones-Littlefield because it is datelined a year later than all listed fractional issues. This is only the second note we have offered from this unlisted emission. PMG notes pinholes (in addition to the obviously missing lower right corner and several small stains). On notes of this great rarity, such condition "trivialities" are almost always trumped by rarity. The only other fractional note from this 1816 emission, in marginally nicer condition, realized $1265 a decade ago. This note is likely to test that level.
