    Unlisted Town and Issuer

    Scottsburgh, NY- Treasury Bank of Livingston County $3 May 15, 1851 UNL PMG Gem Uncirculated 65 EPQ.
    This bank is unreported in both Wismer and Haxby and is even unlisted in Dillistin's Historical Directory of the Banks of the State of New York (1946). It seems that the most likely scenario is that this was a bank that was planned but never actually opened for business. The $3 design features the state bank department die, a vignette of Liberty, Justice, and a third maiden seated by a mirror, and a vignette of an allegorical maiden standing in a niche at right. The note is printed on India paper mounted on cardstock with the usual small POCs in the signature lines. The only evidence of the bank's existence is a single uncut sheet of $1-$1-$2-$3 proofs that was Lot 1341 in the 1990 ABNCo Archives sale. This $3 is very likely unique and destined to stay that way.
