    New York, NY- Mechanics Bank $1 18__ G140 Proof PMG Superb Gem Unc 67 EPQ.
    The bank was organized in 1810 and became the Mechanics National Bank of the City of New York in 1865. The note features an allegorical vignette of Vulcan and Commerce flanked by an oval Arm and Hammer vignette and a vignette of a young woman using dividers. The note is printed on India paper mounted on cardstock with the usual POCs in the signature lines. At one time it was part of the Maryland Historical Society holdings that were sold in 1977. This design was not represented in the 1990 ABNCo Archives sale. We are presently aware of only two surviving examples, with the other note being impaired.
