||Little Falls, MN - Northern Bank $2 18__ MN-63 UNL Hewitt B260-D2b. Proof. PCGS Very Choice New 64. This is another bank that organized, ordered plates with proofs and remainders printed, but did not open and issue notes for circulation. There are seven proofs in the 2006 census and two remainder notes. The American Bank Note Company engraved plate uses late 1858 Danforth, Perkins & Co. vignettes and red protectors. A bold impression that is printed on India paper proof only and is the Hewitt plate note. At the center a young woman tends calves. At the lower left a well-dressed woman with hair in ringlets poses with a dove, while at the lower right a man sharpens a long scythe. The contrast is excellent with deep red protector TWO. This is one of two proofs with red protector known, and a handsome piece. Hole Punch Cancelled is noted and as made. This is a very beautiful note, with elegance and charm. Ex: Eric P.
