    Philadelphia, PA- Western Bank of Philadelphia $500 18__ as G34 as Hoober 305-642 Proof PMG Choice Uncirculated 64.
    The bank was organized in 1832 and continued in business until 1864 when it became the Western National Bank. The layout is pretty standard fare for DUB&S with Liberty seated by the state seal of Pennsylvania flanked by medallion-like cameo heads. The note is printed in black ink although production notes were known to be printed in green or red ink. This example is printed on India paper mounted on cardstock without POCs in the signature lines. There was one example of this note represented in the 1990 ABNCo Archives sale as part of Lot 1710. Possibly unique and likely to stay that way.
