    Possibly Unique $2 Lazy Deuce Face Proof

    Fr. 387 Hessler UNL $2 National Bank Note Face Proof Gem New. The National Bank Note Co. produced this striking plate letter A proof of the Lazy Deuce design. The workmanship is a thrill to study as every intricate engraved detail is revealed by this numismatic marvel. It was printed on card stock and then backed with thin card stock. The corners of the proof are sharp, while nary a mishandling crease can be found on the actual proof. Hessler lists Deuce proofs on the First NB of Philadelphia and Peoples NB of Brattleboro, but not this example. Also, this face proof is not punch cancelled along the bank officer signature lines, therefore greatly adding to its eye appeal and desirability. Certainly, a great item for either the Federal or National collector and deserving of serious attention.
    From the California Proof and Specimen Collection.
