    Philadelphia, PA- City Bank $10 18__ as G8a Hoober as 305-176 Proof PMG Choice Uncirculated 64.
    The bank was organized in 1855 and became the City National Bank in 1864. This elegant note depicts a maiden holding fruit at left, Justice and an unidentified allegorical figure seated by a shield that contains elements of the state seal of Pennsylvania (but is not a faithful reproduction in all respects), and a vignette of a sailor at the helm at right. There is also a small locomotive vignette at bottom center and a large red TEN protector. The note is printed on India paper mounted on cardstock affixed to an original Danforth Wright archive book card. There are the usual small POCs in the signature lines. One sheet of four examples of this design was offered as part of the 1990 ABNCo Archives. We are confident that these four notes probably are the only surviving proof examples of this design.
