    Providence, RI- Phenix Bank $2 Apr. 1, 1860 G12b Durand 1805
    Aptly named, this bank was a reincarnation of the failed Farmers and Mechanics Bank of Pawtucket formed under the forfeited charter in 1833. It went on to become the National Phenix Bank in 1865. Ceres, Commerce, and Justice appear on this note along with a vignette of Vulcan and a small Phenix bird as well as large red script TWO protector. Very Good-Fine and seldom seen, with Durand assigning an R-6 rarity while Haxby lists this variety, with the ABNCo monogram (by Vulcan's hammer head), as SENC.
