    This rare bank has a few issued notes known, mostly $1 notes like this, engraved and printed by Rawdon, Wright Hatch & Edson/New England Bank Note Co. with an "ABC" monogram. This variant with the monogram on the plate is SENC and none are known according to the advanced Whitman Encyclopedia, Volume 2, page 587 citation.

A framed portrait of a pleasant-looking young woman is at lower left. Seated Liberty is at lower right, holding a capped liberty pole and placing one hand on a "1" that rests on a cornucopia spilling coins. A red protector ONE is at bottom center. Tight "New England" trim is seen, and noted is a "Tape Repaired Edge Tear at Right." Strong details considering the circulation, and a key variant.

    Truth Seeker: The Life of Eric P. Newman (softcover)
    A powerful and intimidating dealer of the 1960s, backed by important colleagues, was accused of selling fraudulent gold coins and ingots to unsuspecting numismatists. Who would go up against a man like that and, over the course of decades, prove the fraud? Who would expose a widely respected scholar as a thief, then doggedly pursue recovery of coins that the scholar had stolen from an embarrassed numismatic organization, all over the objections of influential collectors who had bought coins with clouded titles? Eric P. Newman would - and did. Reserve your copy today.
