    Rare Boston Proof Series and Denomination

    Boston, MA - Union Bank $100 18__ MA-385 G248 Proof. PCGS Choice About New 55.
    This Reed, Stiles & Co. India paper proof is a sleeper rarity and not illustrated in Haxby. Like the Abner Reed series imprint proofs, this note uses a variant of the Massachusetts state seal. This time, the banner flows over and around the shield. Counters and end panels have a beaded, floral appearance. The base vignette shows Peace nestled in a large "C." This is a key Boston proof type, very rare and a choice example. Ex: Eric P. Newman Collection where it realized $822.50 in the Part VII sale.
