    Des Moines, IA- City of Des Moines $2 18__ Oakes 42-2 Proof PMG Choice Uncirculated 63.
    It is not clear if these notes were ever issued as no issued notes are known at present. This note depicts two Native American warriors viewing "Progress" in the form of a distant city (this theme was popular in antebellum America) and has an oval vignette of Justice to the right. These flank a central vignette of Ceres and Manufacturing seated together. The note also includes a large red TWO protector and has the usual small POCs in the signature lines. Four examples of this denomination and variety appeared in the 1990 ABNCo Archives sale. A minor tape repair is noted.
    From the Charles R. Pease, Jr. Collection
