    New Orleans, LA - New Orleans Canal & Banking Co. $500 G66a
    The "Canal Bank," for short ,ordered and printed countless sheets from a few engravers and multiple series. Many of those sheets exist today, but the vast majority are cut up. The highest denominations, $500 and $1,000, are comparatively elusive. This is the scarcer Rawdon, Wright, Hatch & Edson series with blue "D" protector. A pair of fierce griffins watch an urn at top right center. The left end has cameo portrait and intricate details. A water nymph is at the right end. The brown back has ornate numerals, title and end panels. A very handsome type. PCGS grades this note Choice About New 58.
