Series of 1882 $5 Brown Back – Group 13 – Circus Poster-3

Group 13 – Circus Poster-3

Circus Poster-3 is similar to CP1 but is distinguished by the elegant shingled three-line engraving of Will Pay/the Bearer on Demand.  “Of” was moved to a conspicuous position to the right of the National Bank banner, allowing the cap above the tombstone to be all but eliminated and the tombstone to rise.  The only known plate of this type was prepared for The Live Stock National Bank of Sioux City, Iowa (5022), certified November 18, 1895.
