DescriptionBoston, MA- Continental Bank $3 Oct. __ 18__ Remainder G6a PMG About Uncirculated 55 EPQ.
Attractive and always in demand, this note's main attraction is its central vignette, The White Bear, engraved by De Witt Clinton Hay and adapted from the art of Felix O.C. Darley. Four fur-clad men in a small boat attempt to fend off an aggressive polar bear rising out of the water, his large paw already on the gunwale; their ship is in the far distance. Hay's The White Bear vignette, though not specifically historic, is relevant to the period of issue. It was engraved at the time of Henry Grinnell's expeditions in search of ill-fated John Franklin and his ships lost decades before in the Canadian Arctic wilderness.
