    Elkton, MD- The Farmers and Merchants Bank of Cecil County $20 Dec.(?) 1, 1862 G12a Shank 41.3.19
    Chartered in 1862, this bank was late on the scene. It was voluntarily liquidated in 1865 and was probably absorbed by the National Bank of Elkton. It features great farming vignettes of two girls gathering wheat, a farmer watering his horses and a young girl reclining next to a basket of the harvest's bounty. Green counters and a tint panel complete the design. This example grades Very Fine with some very light stains in the top margin which are most apparent from the back.
