    Description

    Perth, UC- W. & J. Bell 12 Pence/One Shilling June 12, 1839
    Twin brothers William and John Bell opened a general store in Perth on Jan. 4, 1828. An engraving of the store is observed in the left panel on this 12 pence note. The back of an 1834 British shilling is seen at right. Although they initially were quite successful, the financial crises of 1837-39 took a toll on the business and on William in particular and he died at the age of 38 in 1844. The business failed two years later. Fine.
