    Plymouth, MA- Plymouth Bank $1 18__ as G42 Proof PMG Choice Uncirculated 64.
    The bank was chartered in 1803 and continued in business until 1865 when it became the Plymouth National Bank. The obvious focal point of the design is a large and very well executed vignette entitled The Landing of the Pilgrims 1620. It is flanked by vignettes of four cherubs hoisting a large 1 onto a column and a sailing vessel. A small steamboat vignette appears at bottom center along with a large gray ONE protector. The note is printed on India paper mounted on cardstock without the usual POCs or other forms of cancellations in the signature lines. This note was once part of an uncut sheet sold nearly 25 years prior to the 1990 ABNCo Archives sale (as part of the Lucius S. Ruder Collection in 1966). The latter 1990 sale was devoid of any notes from this bank and we are unaware of any public appearances of this design (with the sailing vessel vignette on the right end) in at least the last decade. Possibly unique in Proof form.
