||Columbia, TX - Commercial & Agricultural Bank of Texas $1-$1-$1-$1 18__TX-5 G2-G2-G2-G2 Olson 1320 Medlar 18 Uncut Sheet. Proof. PCGS Choice About New 55. The Commercial & Agricultural Bank is listed in Haxby. This complete four-subject sheet is India paper proof mounted on its original cardstock; it is an intaglio print, from the plate engraved by Draper, Toppan, Longacre & Co. Remainder $1 notes are plentiful, but very few intact remainder sheets of this type are still known. Until the 1990 American Banknote Company Archives sale, when an example appeared as Lot 1931, a complete proof sheet of the type was unknown to Texas specialists. This proof sheet is the second observed, and it has been newly discovered in the Newman collection. Each of the four impressions share a common, handsome design. At far left is a vignette of tall buckskin-clad Daniel Boone and at the far upper right, an Indian paddling a canoe. Interesting dual denominations are used with ONE DOLLAR and UN PESO. All Texas proofs are rare and proof sheets in private hands are extremely rare; currently, the majority of Texas proofs and proof sheets are strongly held in museums. This sheet is fully margined, and some handling from over 160 years of existence, can be observed only with scrutiny. This bright and deeply inked proof sheet is a Texas showpiece. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
