    Amenia, NY- Hiram Vail's Banking and Collection Office 10¢ Oct. 1, 1862
    This design is not listed in the Harris reference although another 10¢ design is listed and illustrated. Haxby (NY-140) has a listing for Hiram Vail's Bank, but states that the denominations and designs "are unknown to us." Wismer includes two 5¢ listings along with 10¢, 25¢, and 50¢, but has no descriptions for them. Hiram Vail's name is spelled out this example numbered 1036 and the note has his signature. The central vignette is of various farming implements. An approximate one inch tear is at top center and there are several other tears along the margins. Good.
