    Ormsby Overall Vignette

    Sandwich, NH- Carroll County Bank $1 Jan. 1, 1855 as G4 Proof PMG Choice Uncirculated 63.
    Ormsby is said to have always considered this note as the epitome of his design philosophy of huge vignettes simply overpowering the ability of counterfeiters to replicate them. In practice, however, most of Ormsby's work was much closer to the conventional approach of having separate vignettes that appeared in the left, right, and central portions of a bank note. This stunning vignette depicts Mercury and Prosperity flanking an allegorical female with arched ONE protectors and a small male portrait (seemingly almost an afterthought) completing the design. There are two slightly irregular POCs, one in each signature space and several pinholes in the corners.
