||Lewisburg, PA - Lewisburg Bank $1 May 16, 1861 PA-240 G2a Hoober 191-2. PCGS Fine 15PPQ. This might be the finest issued note of its type. The Seitz-Bortner collection note sold in 1990 NASCA-Smythe Memphis sale was barely Good, and it is also listed and known as a proof. This nicely styled note was engraved by the American Bank Note Company. In the center are three Continental soldiers, one with a drum. In the bottom corners are different male portraits. Flanking the center are red numerical protector "1" devices. Well margined with solid paper body. This is another underappreciated rarity. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
Realized $1,527.50. Newman VI (Heritage Auctions, 4/2015), lot 19306. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
