    Description

    Boston, MA- Hide & Leather Bank, Boston $5 Oct. 1, 1857 as G8a Proof PMG Choice Uncirculated 64.
    The bank opened in 1857 and became the National Hide & Leather Bank of Boston (Ch. 460) in 1864. This simply stunning red and black beauty has a large vignette of men working in a tannery which may well have been a custom design given the bank's name. Several large denominational counters and a red and white FIVE protector panel complete the design. Four examples of this design appeared in a single uncut sheet as Lot 690 in the 1990 ABNCo Archives sale. This sheet was subsequently cut sometime after 2005 with the card separating from the sheet. This Plate B note, printed on India paper with the usual POCs in the signature lines, comes with the heavily embossed card for the Plate A note (the POC holes do not match up). A wonderful addition to any obsolete bank note collection.
    From the Charles R. Pease, Jr. Collection, Part II (Total: 2 notes)
