    Albany, NY- Bank of the Capitol $5 18__ G8 Proof PMG Uncirculated 62.
    The bank was organized in 1853 and was suspended in May, 1861. The design vignettes are keyed to the denomination. At center a frontiersman, Native American woman, and three cherubs are by five $1 gold coins dated 1851 and 1852. At right, Liberty, Agriculture, Moneta, Justice, and Minerva surround a large 5. The state bank department die appears at left. The note is printed on India paper. RWH&E sometimes used diagonal slash cancels rather than POCs in the signature lines. The minor repair mentioned by PMG is the sealing of the right-most slash cancel. We believe that this is one of only two or three surviving examples.
