    Washington, DC- Arlington Bank $10 185_ UNL Proof PMG Choice Uncirculated 64 EPQ.
    This was a possibly fraudulent bank "in business" from 1853-54. The note features a large allegorical vignette of Agriculture, Liberty and Navigation at center, Hebe offering water to an eagle at left, and an unidentified oval female portrait at right. It is printed on India paper mounted on cardstock that is, in turn, mounted on a Danforth Wright & Co. archive book card. The note has the usual POCs in the signature lines. The $10 denomination was unknown to Haxby. The only public appearance known to us was as part of the 1990 ABNCo Archives sale where a single $10 appeared as part of lot 189 and was pictured in the catalog. The note was acquired by our consignor via a private sale in 2004. Believed to be unique or nearly so and likely to stay that way.
    From the Charles R. Pease, Jr. Collection
