    Description

    Hartford, CT- Mercantile Bank $50 185_ as G42a Proof PMG Gem Uncirculated 66 EPQ.
    The Mercantile Bank was organized in 1854 and became the Mercantile National Bank of Hartford in 1865. The note features vignettes of a young girl holding a cornucopia and a sailing vessel flanking an oval male portrait, presumably of someone connected with the bank, as well as two red L protectors. It is printed on India paper mounted on a Danforth, Wright archive book card with the usual POCs in the signature lines. With only one example appearing as part of the ABNCo Archives holdings that were dispersed in 1990, it is likely that this, in fact, may be a unique note.
    From the Charles R. Pease, Jr. Collection, Part II
