    Very Rare Engraved Bank of Selma $100 Note

    Selma, AL - Bank of Selma $100 April 4, 1862 AL-95 UNL Rosene 292-5
    Art Davidson recognized the importance of this gorgeous type in the Newman Part VI sale and added it to his cabinet eagerly. This rarity was not present in the very important and comprehensive Walter B. Jones collection sold by us in 2001. We believe this might very well be the finest of five or six known and is much sharper than the only other example we handled which was heavily endorsed. Very beautiful, interesting, and quite rare Alabama note and series. The intaglio style of this note reflects the re-use of old dies or a reworked plate removed from the New Orleans office of Rawdon, Wright & Hatch (Southern Bank Note Company). Eventually, the plate or dies were sent to Leggett, Keatinge & Ball, Richmond, Virginia for creating this rare late type. This is one of the last intaglio printed Confederate area Obsolete banknotes hand-dated April 4, 1862. A classic Moneta, Griffin & Mercury vignette is at top center. At the left is a classical Washington standing and, at the right, a standing classical Plenty. The rich orange protector HUNDRED and dual "100" dies are most impressive. Bold colors enhance a clean face along with its two distinguished pedigrees. PCGS Very Fine 25.
