    Ambridge, PA - $20 1902 Plain Back Fr. 661 The Economy NB Ch. # 13087 PMG Choice Fine 15.
    This bank took its title from the original settlement of the utopian Harmony Society in 1824 in what later became the town of Ambridge. Titled "Economy," the community eventually failed as did most all of the utopian experiments during the 19th century. Ambridge was the headquarters and a contraction of "American Bridge," an industrial giant which established its offices alongside a company town here in 1905. While Series 1929 examples are quite easily available from this institution, large notes are another matter completely, as they were issued for less than three years before the changeover to small size. This piece, which is new to the census, raises the total population to only three, none of which, according to Track & Price, have been available at public sale during the past three decades.
