    Sparta, IL-United States Stock Bank $1 Oct. 1, 1860 as G2a PMG Choice Uncirculated 64.
    A rarity amongst Illinois Free Banks, this institution operated through virtually the entire Civil War period, probably because the rules to be given and maintain a state charter had been significantly tightened by the time this bank opened. Printed by National Bank Note Co., it presents a striking appearance with a bold red undertint complementing a large portrait of Washington. Being printed by National Bank Note Co., this bank was not represented in the 1990 sale of the ABNCo. Archives. We have offered a grand total of four notes on this very rare bank; a Proof $1 (this example), a Proof $2, and two remainder $1s. This example has six of the usually encountered POCs in the signature spaces.
