Merchants Bank $5

Merchants Banknote

1818-30s Proof. RI-355 G26, Durand 1655

“Leney & Rollinson. India paper only. Top center, Neptune one handed driving his Hippocampus, ship in the distance watches all this. Intricate end panels and dies with stunning lathe. The Haxby Plate Note. An excellent condition example from Ford’s ‘’A List’’ Leney & Rollinson proofs. This appeared last as lot 814 in the 1999 Stack’s Americana Sale. Bold printing and clean paper, though we note some wisps of foxing.”
