    Description

    Fort Gaines, GA- John Dill 50¢ Jan. 1, 1841 Proof PMG Choice Uncirculated 64.
    Dill, a high ranking officer in the Georgia militia, ran a general store and tannery in Fort Gaines. This sharply printed and attractive note features a vignette of farm produce and implements flanked by a vignette of a farm boy resting during harvest and another of two allegorical maidens representing the Arts. Printed on India paper with the usual small POCs in the clerk signature line. One example of this denomination appeared as part of an uncut sheet (Lot 273) in the 1990 ABNCo Archives sale. It is likely that this is a unique surviving proof from this issuer as all subsequent auction appearances by all of the proof denominations come from that original uncut sheet.
    From the Charles R. Pease, Jr. Collection, Part II


    Estimate: $500 - $600.
