    Providence, RI- Merchants' Bank in Providence $1 18__ as G8a as Durand 1628 Proof PMG Choice Uncirculated 64.
    The bank was incorporated in 1818 and remained in business until 1865 when the bank became the Merchants' National Bank of Providence. National Bank Note Company did its usual outstanding design work on this $1 that has a wonderful nautical vignette flanked by a portrait of a young woman at left and a vignette of Ceres at right. The note also incorporates a blue-green border and center protector panel. It is printed on India paper mounted on cardstock with the usual POCs in the signature lines. Glue stains on the cardstock have no effect of any kind on the note itself. We believe that around three proofs of this design survive today.
