    Unique and Gem City Bank of Lynn $100 Proof

    Lynn, MA - City Bank of Lynn $100 18__ MA-775 G18 SENC Proof PCGS Gem New 65PPQ.
    This is the highest denomination from this bank and unique. It is the sole example that originated in lot 732 of the 1990 ABNCo Archives sale. An India paper Proof on original archive book card with stunning Danforth, Wright & Co. style throughout. There are titles across the top and the base with C 100 C dies. The lower left corner features a trio of cherubs crushing a rock in a screw press. At lower right, we see a brig under sail. The upper corners show Durand patented counters. This note is in impeccable condition with only hole punch cancels as prepared by the printer. Its pedigree chain proceeded with distinction from its initial 1990 public offering. The City Bank of Lynn demand notes were acquired by Herb and Martha Schingoethe, then to the Peter Mayer collection (it realized $9,400 in November 2014), and at that sale by Art Davidson. The high denomination Massachusetts Proofs, particularly the unique ones, performed justifiably well in our first Charles Pease, Jr. offering in January 2020. An important Massachusetts high denomination and the only example known.
