    Sole Reported Danville, Pennsylvania Ch. 325 $5 Original Series

    Danville, PA - $5 Original Fr. 394a The First National Bank Ch. # 325 PMG Very Fine 30.
    The $5 First Charter notes are intricately designed and beautifully engraved on both sides. The Continental Bank Note Co. face plate vignettes are adapted from two paintings with common themes. At the left is Columbus in Sight of Land by Charles Fenton, as attributed by Hessler; at right is America Presented to the Old World by P. A. Liebler. The green back frames enclose the oval scene titled The Landing of Columbus, which was based on a painting by John Vanderlyn; state arms vignettes appear at the left end, and American symbols are to the right. The bank issued notes from Original Series to 1929 small size. However, the earliest notes are very rare, and this $5 Original Series is the only one from the bank reported on Track & Price. Although the margins are traditionally close for the type in some spots, this is still a very vivid, well printed, and colorful note with modest circulation. Mike purchased it privately at the 2017 IPMS show.
    From The Mike Coltrane Collection.

    Estimate: $2,000 - $3,000.
