    Description

    Methuen, MA- Spicket Falls Bank $20 Oct. 1, 1853 G12a Proof PMG Choice Uncirculated 64 EPQ.
    The bank was chartered in 1853 and remained in business until becoming the National Bank of Methuen in 1865. The $20 features a vignette of a hunter warming his hands over a fire and an oval portrait of Lewis Cass, prominent Michigan politician and the Democratic candidate for President in 1848. A large red XX protector dominates the center of the note, printed on India paper with the usual small POCs in the signature lines. This denomination did not appear in the 1990 ABNCo Archives sale. The only auction appearance of which we are aware was as part of a 2006 Smythe & Co. sale (one of the Schingoethe sessions). This note was the Haxby plate note and is likely unique or nearly so.
    From the Charles R. Pease, Jr. Collection, Part II
