||Baltimore, MD - Bank of Baltimore $100 1___ MD-15 Haxby 95-G72 Shank 5.5.61 SENC. Remainder. PCGS Extremely Fine 40. A very rare and first bank series Remainder note that was likely kept by the bank for archive and counterfeit detection comparison purposes. The type is unlisted in Haxby and placed into its proper series order by author and researcher Armand Shank's Maryland state volume, but without adding specific information available at the time (see his 2004 CSNS Collection Lot 16599 for a similar example). Printed on a slightly translucent, fine tan paper with engraved text and title in various fonts. At the top is a solitary outlined "100" oval counter and at the left end is a shaded panel with One Hundred perpendicular. This high-grade example shows minimal handling and is well margined considering the notes must have been very close to one another on the sheet. This is a Rarity-7 (1-5 known) note in our opinion and a choice example. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
Realized $1,762.50. Newman VI (Heritage Auctions, 4/2015), lot 19110. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
