    Memphis, TN- Mechanics Bank of Memphis $5 (2) May 31, 1854 as G6d; as G6e Very Fine; About Uncirculated.
    The bank issued a complicated series of $5s with no 5 - 5 protectors as well as with two different styles of protectors in three different colors each. In addition varieties exist with a "3" written in front of the engraved day of the date creating notes dated "May 1, 1854" as well as "May 31, 1854." The purpose for so many varieties is not clear although it may have aided bank personnel in identifying where notes were being redeemed from and where notes were to be placed in circulation. (Total: 2 notes)
