    Petersburg, IN - Farmers' & Drovers Bank $1 Oct. 4, 1858 G2a
    This note has an intense W.L. Ormsby vignette and features a bear attacking a woodsman's dog. Grimacing, he raises his axe upwards, ready to strike. In bottom corner ovals men are harvesting wheat, their backs turned to the border of the note. The orange back emanates from the center and is composed of micro-lettered ONE elements. Much scarcer than many collectors realize with the higher $5 and $10 notes being most available. Some light staining is seen on this otherwise pristine PCGS Apparent About New 55.
