Beautifully engraved by the American Bank Note Co., New-York and India paper proof mounted on original cardstock, but without a protector. At the left, under the title, the reclining river goddess is spilling water. At the lower right is a farmer and field hand. The issued note of this type used a green protector and a green back.
