    Conway, MA- Conway Bank $1-$1-$2-$5 G2b-G2b-G4b-G8b Steel Printing Plate
    The Conway Bank operated from 1854 until 1864 when it became the Conway National Bank, charter number 895. Almost all of the notes from the Obsolete era of the bank are listed in Haxby as SENC, Surviving Example Not Confirmed. Proofs on the bank became available when the American Bank Note Company's archives were sold in 1990 and a Proof Sheet of these denominations is also being offered in this auction. The bank is known by collectors of bank notes with Santa Claus vignettes as the $20 denomination issued by the bank included a design of Santa in a sleigh pulled by reindeer over rooftops. Two different varieties of Proofs with the Santa Claus vignette from the bank are included in The Roger H. Durand Santa Claus Collection in this auction. James S. Whitney's portrait is engraved on the $5 plate. Whitney (1811-78) served the community in a number of different roles and was the prime organizer of the bank. Areas of rust are observed on this plate, primarily at the periphery outside of the designs.
