    Richmond, VA- Bank of Richmond $100 July 9, 1861 G12a PMG Very Fine 20
    The $100 was the largest denomination issued by this bank and is printed in three colors, with green and red counters and a green HUNDRED protector. Interestingly, this note that was issued after the commencement of hostilities still sports the state treasurer countersignature and die. This practice had been dispensed with by most of the state's free banks much earlier, suggesting that this note had been in inventory, signed by the state treasurer, for some time before finally being released in the summer of 1861. The note is very rare with perhaps 2-4 known surviving examples according to Jones-Littlefield. We have only been able to offer two previous examples of this design, one of which had large cut out cancels. PMG has noted pinholes which do not detract from the beauty and sheer rarity of this note.
