    Newport, RI- The Newport Bank $2 Sep. 1, 1852 G24 Durand 648
    A successful institution, this bank which opened in 1803 remained in business until it became the Newport National Bank (charter 1492) in 1865. The striking central vignette depicts blind Justice and Liberty flanking a large 2. Durand lists this denomination as an R7 meaning that between one and five examples were known to him at the time of publication in 1981. As an added bonus there is a delightful advertisement for the "Chinese Billiard Rooms" located at 539 and 541 Broadway in New York stamped on the back. PCGS grades this note Fine 12.
