    Bath, ME- Long Reach Bank $500 18__ as G16a as Wait 63 Proof PMG Choice About Unc 58 EPQ.
    This bank was the successor to the Commercial Bank of Bath that was incorporated in 1857. Precious few of such a large denomination note would have been issued and even fewer left unredeemed when the bank closed in 1864. The $500 has two great vignettes, one of a pair of Revolutionary War era soldiers and the other depicting two shipwrights conferring. It is printed on India paper with the usual small POCs in the signature lines. There were nine examples of this variety without the red 500 protector (including this note) in the 1990 ABNCo Archives sale.
