    Providence, RI- Continental Bank $1 Apr. 2, 1863 G2b Durand 1233 PCGS Very Fine 25.
    The Continental Bank was organized in 1853 and became the Fourth National Bank (Charter 772) in 1865. The note features a large panoramic train vignette and a red ONE protector panel. PCGS notes minor edge damage (probably due to a POC that tore out) as well as nearly 20 POCs. This note was issued at nearly the end of the note issuing period in April, 1863. On the day this note was issued, a bread riot broke out in Richmond, VA. President Jefferson Davis actually threw money to the crowd in an attempt to calm things before police and troops finally broke the riot up.
