    Springfield, IL- Clark's Exchange Bank $1 18__ as G2 Proof PMG Choice Uncirculated 64 EPQ.
    The bank operated under the Free Banking laws of Illinois from approximately 1852 until 1855 when it closed. A large vignette of two farmers driving sheep and a woman drawing water from a well flank an interesting and quite unusual design containing a listing of the various Clark banking operations in Philadelphia, Boston, New York, St. Louis, and Burlington, IA. The note is printed on India paper, mounted on cardstock, with the usual POCs in the signature lines. A number of examples of this denomination appeared in the ABNCo Archives sale in 1990 (Lots 379 and 380) and were subsequently dispersed in a number of public auction appearances. An historically important note with great design.
    From the Charles R. Pease, Jr. Collection
