    Gloucester, MA- Bank of Cape Ann $5 18__ as G8a Proof PMG Choice Uncirculated 64 EPQ.
    The Bank of Cape Ann opened in 1856 and remained in business until 1865 when it was succeeded by the Cape Ann National Bank of Gloucester (Ch. 899). The spectacular center vignette depicts the cod fishing fleet with a lighthouse in the distance. Vignettes of a child with chickens and a Native American woman complete the design along with a red FIVE protector. This lovely note is printed on India paper mounted on the original archive book card and has the usually encountered small POCs in the signature lines. The denomination was represented by a single example that was part of an uncut sheet in Lot 715 of the 1990 ABNCo Archives sale which subsequently made one 2013 public auction appearance before joining our consignor's collection. Two original die proofs of the Native American woman and the fishing scene which are mounted on diesunk cardstock are also included
