    Portrait of G.B. Lamar - CSA Agent for Montgomery Note Sourcing

    Savannah, GA- Bank of Commerce $100 Sep. 4, 1861 G14a PCGS Very Fine 35.
    While the $100 denomination from this bank is periodically available, this variety with the the portrait of G.B. Lamar is not. This design is excessively rare with one proof and perhaps three or four issued examples being the only notes known to us at present. Lamar, of course, was the agent for the Confederacy who negotiated the production of the Montgomery notes with ABNCo. / National Bank Note Co. This note has come down to us through the Len Glazer, Art Davidson, and Alan Dorris collections and served as the plate note in the Haxby catalog (Page 291, right column). PCGS notes a small hinge-repaired body hole in the center of the note as well as some minor mounting remnants on the back.
