    Description

    Lowell, MA- Prescott Bank $100 July 2, 1860 G26a Proof PMG Choice Uncirculated 63.
    The bank opened in 1850 and remained in business until 1865 when it became the Prescott National Bank of Lowell (Ch. 960). With amazing red and gray tints, this note has an unidentified male portrait (probably of someone associated with the bank) and a larger than usual vignette of Fidelity with the often used representation of a dog lying by a strong box with a key under its paw. This note is the Haxby plate note with the POC pattern precisely matching that found on this note. In addition, two hinge remnants on the back left and right margins offer a strong suggestion that the provenance on this note possibly stretches as far back as D.C. Wismer in the 1930s. We are aware of one other example which appeared in public auction sales in 2005 and 2014.
