    Description

    Pennsylvania- Bank of North America, Philadelphia August 6, 1789 3d PMG About Uncirculated 55.
    Mounting marks appear at the corners of the polychrome back as this piece was mounted for display face up. PMG has commented "adhesive." The bank was chartered on Dec. 31, 1781. Benjamin Franklin's grandson, Benjamin Franklin Bache, printed these "tickets" as they were known. On January 7, 1782, Robert Morris wrote in his diary "I shall do all in my power to establish and support the bank, and as a beginning have this day drawn my warrant on the treasury for two hundred thousand dollars in part of the shares I have subscribed in behalf of the public." Morris experienced financial problems later that landed him in debtor's prison.
