    CONDON BANK BAG - COFFEYVILLE, KANSAS - SITE OF THE DALTON BROTHERS RAID OF OCT. 5, 1892 - ca.1915. This is a very rare bank bag from the Condon National Bank in Coffeyville, Kansas. The Dalton Brothers Gang tried to rob this bank and the First National Bank across Main Street simultaneously, with disastrous results. The First National Bank yielded about $20,000 but the teller at the Condon Bank refused to give any money claiming the safe had a time lock. As the divided Dalton Gang headed down the street to their horses, a massive gunfight with the townspeople erupted, killing four of the Gang members and four townsmen. The Gang had only one surviving member, Emmett Dalton. The bank was known as the C.M. Condon & Co. Bank at this time, and the bag dates to later, about 1915. It measures over 12"x 6" and has some wormholes and wear, the printing remains clear and strong. A nice, historical bank bag that is a rare and unusual Dalton Gang collectible.
