    Smyrna, DE- Bank of Smyrna $5 18__ as G46 Proof PMG Choice Uncirculated 64.
    While a number of proofs of other issues of this bank have appeared in recent years, the same cannot be said for this earlier Underwood, Bald & Spencer product. We are only aware of a single public auction offering in 2014 after the original appearance of three examples in the 1990 ABNCo Archives sale (Lot 156). The note is a classic UBS design with cameo heads galore (virtually impossible for counterfeiters to successfully duplicate). The center vignette was sometimes "regionalized" by changing the crop and workers depending on what part of the country was home to the issuer. The faint ghost image of a $3 Bank of Hamilton (Ohio) note (Wolka 1235-10) appears on the cardstock on the back.
    From the Charles R. Pease, Jr. Collection
