    Description

    Wiscasset, MA- Wiscasset Bank Notes, Letter, and More
    $2; $3 (approximate one inch tear); $10 (2) 1817 G16; G18; G22 Very Good or better
    A rare bank that operated from 1812-20 with this being our first offering. Haxby list the $2 and $3 as SENC. A listing torn in two (and counted as two items in the number count) accompanies the four notes. The four notes in this lot plus notes from two other banks are listed as the signer attempts payment at the Wiscasset Bank. At the bottom of the letter is hand-written in part (a transcript is included), "Wiscasset Sep. 7 1820...demanded payment which was refused and at the same time notified the cashier that I should claim interest on this sum from this date...T. Browne." We are betting that Mr. Browne was unsuccessful. The item count in this lot also includes a home made bank band labeled as "Wiscasset." There will be no returns on this lot for any reason. (Total: 8 items)
