Mount Hope Bank $100

Mount Hope Bank Bristol

1820s Proof. RI-45 G20, Durand 171

“This is a very rare Reed, Stiles & Co, imprint laid paper proof… A rare vignette from the imprint is at top center with an oval anchor motif between the harbor and wharf scene left and the farming community and goods to the right. Intricate end panels in their style, with a curved cartouche at left showing ONE HUNDRED, and the state in the right cartouche. Noted as ‘Stained,’ and there is damp staining in the center. Pen squiggles in the signature blocks.”
