    Philadelphia, PA- Bank of Pennsylvania $20 18__ as G184 Proof PMG Choice Uncirculated 64.
    The bank was organized as one of the nation's first post-colonial era commercial banks in 1794 and remained in business until 1842 when it closed only to re-open a year later in 1843. The bank failed during the Panic of 1857. The $20 layout includes a rendition of the Pennsylvania state seal flanked by horses and the portraits of three prominent but now unknown gentlemen connected with either the state or the bank. A light rose TWENTY protector appears on the lower half of the note over the signature lines. The note is printed on India paper with numerous POCs in the President's signature line. This note was formerly part of the Western Reserve Historical Society holdings and is one of two presently known Proofs for this design.
