    Bordentown, NJ- Bordentown Banking Co. $2 Oct. 1, 1851 as G4a Proof; Back Proof PMG Gem Uncirculated 66 EPQ; PMG Choice Uncirculated 63.
    The $2 face proof design includes the state treasurer die, reflecting the bank's status from 1851-1854 as a Free Bank, with bonds securing the circulation being deposited with the state. The main vignette shows two men trying to calm their horses who are frightened by an approaching train. To your cataloger's eye, the horses and horsemen are out of scale to the train and tracks. The back may or may not have been part of the design for notes from this earlier Free Bank period. We can say that it was used for the later Chartered Bank issues (1855-65). The face proof has the usual small POCs in the signature spaces; both pieces are mounted on cardstock. PMG notes a small glue streak on the back proof at left. These two proofs were originally part of the ABNCo Archives holdings. (Total: 2 notes)
