1862 $5 Wrentham Bank Massachusetts Obsolete Note - Any Information?

Does anyone know price/rarity on this obsolete note? We are looking at getting the Haxby book soon so we don't have to bother you guys as much :D

    Haxby lists this as a spurious note as MA-1335-S10 with a value of $20 in VG and $35 in VF. Although spurious, it's a very scarce note and worth closer to the more current valuation in Kelly rather than the 35 year old Haxby valuation.
