    Important Stamford "Launching of the Adriatic" $100 Proof

    Stamford, CT- Stamford Bank $100 18__ G36 Proof
    An exciting $100 Proof from the Davidson Collection which is SENC in Haxby and the only example known. Not only is this the highest denomination from the bank (the listed SENC $500 and $1000 notes seem a dream) known, but it is centered by the spectacular and rare Launching of the Adriatic vignette. One of the most intricate obsolete note vignettes, it is a furioso scene by Toppan, Carpenter & Co.. Bottom of sheet, full margined card proof with ample border on the top. This originally came from the American Bank Note Company archives, but privately and first changed hands in 1997 at the Memphis Show. Peter Mayer was the lucky purchaser of this treasure and it remained in his collection until Art bought it at the March 2015 Peter Mayer Part III Baltimore sale for $7,637.50. Now certified, this is a riveting and virtually perfect Gem. One of the great Connecticut Obsolete notes with vignette, condition, pedigree, and unique character. PCGS Gem New 65PPQ.
