||Minneapolis, MN - Minneapolis Bank $1 March 1, 1864 MN-80 G2a Hewitt B340-D1b. PCGS Fine 15 Apparent. There are seven issued notes from the bank listed in 2006 in the Hewitt census and this is the solitary $1 note. This was printed by the American Bank Note Co., New-York using the same face plate designs as the $1 proof, but with the added green protector that outlines a white ONE across the bottom center. The green back is similar in style to those used on the Thorne's Bank with the obligation "Secured by the Pledge of Public Stocks of the United States" within the central die. The face, with bold green color, is very vivid for the technical grade. This is designated Apparent with a few unfortunate "Paper Scuffs on Back" that are scattered small paper pulls mostly confined to the perimeter white area and away from the green printed portion. An amazing opportunity to obtain one of the greatest Minneapolis Obsolete banknotes. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
Realized $5,405.00. Newman VI (Heritage Auctions, 4/2015), lot 19156. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
