$10 bill with AK Steunenberg signature

Here is a nice $10 Idaho brown back note from the First National Bank of St. Anthony. Currently it is up for auction (link won't last forever). Thank you Idaho currency collector Greg Davis  for bringing it to my attention. This is not the first one we have seen but they come along very infrequently.

In the right lower corner we see the signature of AK Steunenberg as bank president. I would love to have one but the $5k it will take, or maybe even a little more, is probably too rich for my wallet.

Signature of AK Steunenberg. "Spurred by A.K.’s zeal, the brothers established other banks in St. Anthony, Paris, and Glenn’s’ Ferry, Idaho and in Wallowa and Vale, Oregon, which eventually yielded the governor banking stock worth $12,000.”
