    Santa Claus Note

    New York, NY- Saint Nicholas Bank $1 Nov. 1, 1859 G2a PCGS Very Fine 35.
    An issued example with a red "ONE" protector. This cancelled note with the Santa Type II vignette has four POCs at the signature lines. This example is one serial number higher than the Haxby plate note. The building in the central vignette is the Saint Nicholas Hotel. Information about the hotel can be found on page 136 in Durand's Interesting Notes About Architecture book. A gorgeous six story building with a marble edifice, the hotel could accommodate up to 1,000 guests. It was located on the west side of Broadway between Broome and Spring streets. Approximately three dozen surviving examples of this variety have been reported. This is an attractive mid-grade $1 with just some hole punch cancels that do not touch the all-important Santa vignette. This note was originally part of the Roger H. Durand Santa Claus Collection.
