    Fairhaven, MA- Fairhaven Bank $50 G84a Proof PMG Choice Uncirculated 64.
    The bank opened in 1831 and continued in business until becoming the National Bank of Fairhaven (Ch. 490) in 1864. This is a busy note with vignettes of a farm family with a spirited horse, cattle resting under a tree, a farm wife feeding the chickens, and, last but not least, an oval portrait of Washington in profile. A secondary green plate provided two corner counters and a panel covering the signature lines. The note is printed on India paper and has the usual small POCs in the signature lines. PMG notes that the example has been previously mounted but the evidence is very difficult to locate through the holder. We are aware of two surviving proof examples of this design.
