    Description

    Tecumseh, MI- Bank of Tecumseh $2 18__ as G24 Lee TEC-3-2 PMG Choice Uncirculated 64.
    The bank was unusual in that it had two lives. First opening in 1836, the bank closed in 1839. After nearly two decades it was then revived in 1855, only to fail a second time in 1860. The $2 has a wonderful vignette of two putti playing on two large silver dollars. This is flanked by a portrait of a young woman and a vignette of a Native American mother and child that is seldom seen. The note is printed on India paper mounted on cardstock with the usual POCs in the signature lines. The back of the card has a bold impression of a $5 note from the same issue on it. Unrepresented in the 1990 ABNCo Archives sale and very rare with only one known public auction appearance in the last decade.
