    Description

    Beaver Dam, WI- Dodge County Bank $1 Apr. 12, 1855 Proof Choice Crisp Uncirculated.
    A couple of checked paper thins seen from the back. This is a much rarer bank from Beaver Dam, and proofs from this series were not included in the Krause Collection. An India paper proof only, engraved and printed by Toppan, Carpenter & Co. This imprint was not in the 1990 American Banknote Company Archive sale; those proofs were dispersed long before the 1858 consolidation of the seven firms. At top center, women operate textile machinery. Ceres is seated at lower left with a sickle and an ox. This note has no protector; the issued notes from the bank used red protectors, and the Krause Collection had an issued note of this denomination. Hole Punch Cancelled as prepared at the engraving firm. The first $1 Proof we sold was a PCGS Apparent Very Choice New 64 that realized $1,292.50.
