    Seaford, DE- Diamond State Bank $2 Feb. 15, 1866 G4a PMG Choice Fine 15.
    This is a very scarce bank and very well designed note printed by the American Bank Note Co. The late written date "1866" is right on the cusp of the Federal government placing a tax on private banknotes. At upper left, farmers gather ears of corn in baskets and load them onto a wagon. The harnessed horse nuzzles her foal. Just right of top center, a sailboat is being rowed out of the calm harbor. At bottom right, a sailor holding a spyglass leans casually on a capstan. An unusual "$2" counter is at the upper right. The bottom center has a red TWO protector. A bright note overall, but noted with "Tape Repairs." A difficult note to obtain that has interesting nuances.
