    Plattsburgh, NY- Mercantile Bank of Plattsburgh $2 Mar. 4, 185_ as G4a Proof PMG Uncirculated 62.
    The bank was organized in 1853 and remained in business until suspending in 1866. The $5 design features a large vignette of a sidewheeler river steamer flanked by an oval portrait of Commodore Perry at left and a vignette of a farmer sharpening a large scythe in front of a six foot tall 2. The note is printed on India paper with the usual small POCs in the signature lines. PMG notes minor repairs that seem to be limited to a couple small nicks and tears that have been sealed. The paper also has some wrinkling. This denomination was not represented in the ABNCo Archives holdings and is undoubtedly represented by only a small handful of surviving proofs.
