    Description

    Boston, MA- Mount Vernon Bank of the City of Boston $5 Dec. 1, 1860 G8a Proof PMG Uncirculated 62.
    The bank was chartered in 1860 and remained in operation until becoming the Mount Vernon National Bank in 1865. Printed by ABNCo, this striking green and black note depicts Washington's home, Mount Vernon, the namesake for this bank as well as the state auditor's die and an oval portrait of Edward Everett. The note also has a green FIVE/5 protector panel and a green counter completing the design. It is printed on India paper mounted on cardstock with the usual small POCs in the signature lines. This design was not part of the 1990 ABNCo Archives sale, with several sources estimating the surviving Proof population at three or four notes, one of which has Everett's portrait cut out and crudely replaced with a non-original portrait.
