||Brinkerhoff, WI - St. Croix River Bank $10 18__ WI-85 G4. Proof. PCGS Choice About New 58 Apparent. This is the bottom note from the sheet and one of only two from the bank known to be available, both for the first time. A gorgeous Wellstood, Hay & Whiting, New York design printed on India paper only. Across most of the top is a long train, with "St. C/R.R." deftly monogrammed onto a storage car. At the lower left is standing Liberty, her hand and foot resting on a tall "X." Hole Punch Cancelled as made. Once again, a proof note that is so rare it is virtually unknown. Apparent, due only to an "Edge Tear at Left." Another highlight from this fascinating section, and indeed, the entire auction. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
