||Fayetteville, AR - Branch of the Bank of the State of Arkansas at Fayetteville $50 Post Note Oct. 1, 1838 AR-10 G166 Rothert 186-9. PCGS Very Fine 25. This is another rare, fully issued Fayetteville branch note, but payable at a later date and not necessarily "on demand". The vignettes are radically different from the $50 demand type: top center, a bay horse canters left; at the left end, within circle, a farmer steers a horse-drawn plow; at the right end, within circle, a farmer sows seeds with draft horses nearby. This attractive note has a clean face and sturdy paper body. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
Realized $822.50. Newman VI (Heritage Auctions, 4/2015), lot 19012. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
