Description Newton, IL - Illinois Central Bank $1 Dec. 1, 1859. PCGS Very Fine 25PPQ. The Newman Illinois collection contains many key vignettes and genres of Obsolete currency collecting. This issued Newton note has one of the most finely crafted vignettes, The Launching of the Adriatic, engraved by the American Banknote Company. The green protector grill across the center and on the left end panel combine with the historic image for a powerful presentation. There is at least one other example extant (the Haxby Plate note), but with its bold color and excellent margins, this is clearly the finest known. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
