    Rockaway, NJ- Rockaway Bank $2 May 1, 1858 G4b as Wait 2134 Proof PMG About Uncirculated 50 Net.
    Although incorporated in 1858, it is not clear when, or if, the bank was in active operation. The $2 design has an interesting center vignette of the Wheeler, Madden and Bakewell factory. This manufacturing facility was located in Middletown, NY, about seventy miles away. Some have speculated that the person in charge of picking note design elements chose it for purely esthetic reasons. The note utilizes a brown overall lace network and a large dark brown TWO protector. This example is printed on India paper with the usual POCs in the signature lines. PMG mentions that there has been a restoration reattaching the right end. This was very skillfully done with virtually perfect alignment of all of the design elements on the face. This note was not in the 1990 ABNCo Archives sale (the note there had an orange rather than brown tint). We are aware of two examples of this variety; this note and the Haxby plate note whose POC locations do not match.
