    Description

    Bridgeport, CT- Pequonnock Bank $3 18__ as G6a Proof PCGS Choice About New 55.
    The vignettes on this note, which was represented by a single example in the 1990 ABNCo Archives sale, are well selected to commemorate Jenny Lind's concert tour of America in 1850-52. Her portrait appears at right while that of the grand promoter, P.T. Barnum appears at left. Barnum's grand mansion, Iranistan, appears in the center. The mansion was built during the course of 1845-48. During her tour, Jenny Lind stayed there and is said to have commented that a vignette of the mansion was what prompted her to accept Barnum's offer. The house was destroyed by fire in 1857 as it was being renovated as the result of an earlier fire. We are aware of only two examples of this design at present, with this note not being from the ABNCo Archives. PCGS notes that this proof is mounted on cardstock and has the usual POCs in the signature lines
