    Greenville, KY- Bank of Greenville $5 18__ UNL as Hughes 325 Proof PMG Choice Uncirculated 63 EPQ.
    The Bank of Greenville was chartered in 1818 and was apparently open at least for a brief period of time based on the existence of an issued $1 note dated October 3, 1818. The design chosen was much simpler than this proposed $5 suggesting budget considerations. The $5 is essentially a progress proof, with the end panels and counters still blank. A maiden representing perhaps Agriculture is seated next to a 5 and is holding a rake. The note is printed on India paper, mounted on paper. When last sold in 2006 at a public auction, the assertation was made that this note was the only $5 example known in proof form and nothing has occurred in the last fourteen years to challenge that belief.
    From the Charles R. Pease, Jr. Collection
