    Savannah, GA- Central Rail Road & Banking Co. $5 18__ G42a Proof PCGS Banknote Choice Unc 63
    An electrifying firebrick red tinted proof, this piece was engraved and printed by the National Bank Note Company. The stunning color is complemented by its black printing including the top center train vignette that was also used on the Confederate $100 Type 3 Montgomery note. Extremely rare, this beautiful note with deep color is one of two known proofs we are aware of. PMG notes some minor edge damage seen at the top center only. Color proofs from the National Bank Note Company have always been considered the elite styles.
