    Boston, MA - Grocers Bank $100 18__ G16 Proof
    All issued notes and proofs from this bank are rarities, despite closing as the circulation was redeemed and likely a successor bank assumed any outstanding notes into the National Banking period. The highest denomination from the series and likely the Haxby Plate Note. It is the cited example in Whitman also. Tom Denly owned this gorgeous proof and he obtained it at the 1983 NASCA Affleck sale, the penultimate event of that legendary currency and numismatic auction house (the first with a buyer's premium). It last sold in the first Mayer sale at the 2014 ANA for $2,350. A very boldly printed Toppan, Carpenter & Co. proof on India paper. Navigation, Commerce and Franklin in nice layout. Some old repairs noted including a repaired edge UR and minor mounting remnants. PCGS Choice About New 58.
