National Exchange Bank $1
Original Series (1865) First Charter, Fr. 380. Charter #1565, Newport
“The paper is a little toned but decent body seems to remain and there is still clear evidence of embossing at the title, rarely seen at this grade level. Tight New England edges against the design borders. A couple of tiny pinholes, as expected. Signatures are clear. While 22 notes are reported on the title, there are just three aces including this one. Signatures of S.H. Norman, cashier, and Philip Caswell, Jr., president.”
