Series of 1882 $5 Brown Back – Group 6 – Two Line Payment Clause

Group 6 – Two Line Payment Clause

The distinguishing feature of group 6 notes is the two line payment clause WILL PAY/THE BEARER ON DEMAND which is found only under titles that end in NATIONAL BANK.  The layout is found on only a few plates prepared during 1887 and 1888, including some replacement plates.  The replacements supplant inartistic group 1 plates.

There are two varieties for the lettering in the will pay clause  One exhibits generic looking white letters similar to those on group 3 notes, the other has slightly larger letters that appear dark and contain closely spaced horizontal lines.
