    Unique and Regally Pedigreed Bank of Commerce $500 Color Proof, Nearly Perfect PCGS Superb Gem New 68PPQ

    Savannah, GA - Bank of Commerce $500 Oct. 1, 1857 G18a Proof PCGS Superb Gem New 68PPQ.
    This is king of all Georgia proofs and it comes with a mighty biography. It was a showpiece from the Alan Dorris Collection that we commenced selling five years ago with the core collection notes. This was hands down the star achieving a $56,400 realization in combative competition. Amazingly, there is an issued note known of the type. However, this is a unique full color print by Danforth, Wright & Co. It appears to be a series upon itself as there are no known $20, $50 or $100 notes observed and was printed on one-subject sheet. India paper only. Standing Liberty is at the far left and the right end has a ship within a finely lathed geometric frame. The color tint is splendid forming a spectacular view that merits close inspection in person. As close to perfect as an Obsolete Note proof can get. That preservation and its greatest rarity make it one the great highlights from the Pease collection. He certainly treasured the pride of ownership of this trophy and the next curator will also. Six POCs.
    From the Charles R. Pease, Jr. Collection
