    Holyoke, MA- Hadley Falls Bank $50 18__ as G22 Proof PMG Gem Uncirculated 66 EPQ.
    The Hadley Falls Bank opened in 1851 and became the Hadley Falls National Bank of Holyoke (Ch. 1246) in 1865. This lovely note depicts an oval portrait of Webster flanked by Ceres and Commerce with vignettes of a multi-role allegorical woman on the left representing perhaps either America or The Arts on the left and a mechanic on the right. There is an overall red tint and a brick red and white script FIFTY protector. The note is printed on India paper with the usual small POCs in the signature lines. Two examples of this note appeared in the 1990 ABNCo Archives sale as part of lots 726 and 727. At present we believe that there are two or possibly three extant examples.
    From the Charles R. Pease, Jr. Collection
