    Bordentown, NJ- Bordentown Banking Co. $5 Oct. 1, 1851 as G6a Proof; Back Proof PMG Gem Uncirculated 66 EPQ; PMG Choice Uncirculated 63.
    The presence of the state treasurer die on this note indicates that this note design was intended for use when the bank was operating as a Free Bank between 1851 and 1854. A vignette of a milkmaid seated by a shield with a train on it and an oval portrait of Washington complete the major design elements. It is uncertain if the back was used for Free Bank issues although we know it was used for the later chartered bank series. Both impressions are printed on India paper mounted on Danforth Bald archive book cards, with the face proof having the usual small POCs in the signature lines. They were originally part of the ABNCo Archives holdings. (Total: 2 notes)
