    Danvers, MA- Village Bank $100 Oct. 1, 1857 as G70 Proof PMG Gem Uncirculated 66 EPQ.
    The Village bank opened in 1836 and became the First National Bank of Danvers (Ch. 594) in 1864. The simple, yet attractive design include an oval portrait of a young woman and a half length vignette of two workers pausing to "solve all of the world's problems." A striking brick red denominational medallion and protector block complete the design. It was printed on India paper, mounted on cardstock and then apparently mounted on a Danforth, Wright & Co. archive book card. While Haxby lists this design, it is with the later ABNCo imprint rather than Danforth Wright & Co. This note appeared as part of Lot 709 in the 1990 ABNCo Archives sale and is likely unique. There are a number of the usual small POCs in the signature lines.
