||East Haddam, CT - East Haddam Bank $20 18__ CT-105 G80 SENC. Proof. PCGS Choice New 63. A very boldly executed India paper proof die sunk to its original card, showing the rarely encountered, short-lived 1830s Casiliear, Durand, Burton & Edmonds, N. York imprint. At top center, seated Commerce is on the shoreline with ships at full sail seen behind; at the left end is Washington; and at the right end, an unidentified male portrait. Hole Punch Cancelled in the India paper only and so noted. Very rare and an SENC type listing in Haxby. We have seen and handled only one other.
