    Bunker Hill Monument

    Charlestown, MA- Bunker Hill Bank $1 18__ G8a Proof PMG Choice Uncirculated 63.
    A long-lived institution, this bank was in business from 1825 until it became the Bunker Hill National Bank of Charlestown (Ch. 635) in 1864. This note has an interesting design with the bank name repeated in bold red letters in two panels along the top margin. The design also incorporates a vignette of Liberty standing, the famous Bunker Hill Monument (actually located on Breed's Hill where most of fighting took place), and a vignette of Washington at Dorchester Heights. This example was once part of the Peter Mayer collection and later appeared in a public auction in 2015 when it was acquired by our consignor. We are unaware of any other public appearances by this proof design in the last decade, attesting to the rarity of this issue. The usual POCs appear in the signature lines.
    From the Charles R. Pease, Jr. Collection
