    New Orleans, LA - New Orleans Improvement & Banking Co. (Banque des Amèliorations) $100 May 8, 1840 LA-120 G10. PCGS Fine 12.
    Most notes from this uniquely vignetted series are impaired. This is an above average grade example from this Rawdon, Wright & Hatch, New-York engraved plate series. Like most notes from the bank, it also features the unique top center vignette designed for the bank, the extremely long and well-detailed view of the St. Louis Hotel building. A trifle rough-edged at the right end. Ex Eric P. Newman Collection where it realized $199.75 in the Part VII sale.
