    Providence, RI- Mechanics & Manufacturers Bank $1 18__ as G4 as Durand 1588 Proof PMG Choice About Unc 58.
    The bank was incorporated in 1827 and survived a brush with officer embezzlement in 1850 to become the Fifth National Bank of Providence in 1864. The note features a large vignette of Commerce and Agriculture. The note is printed on India paper mounted on wide cardstock with the usual POCs in the signature lines. PMG notes that there is a small edge tear into one of the POCs in the President signature line. Not represented in the 1990 ABNCo Archives sale, there is only a single public auction appearance in the last decade known to us.
