Description Eagle Point, WI - Arctic Bank $10 18__ WI-135 G4a. Proof. PCGS Gem New 65PPQ. With the Wisconsin Historical Society's proof being the published example in two references, we are fairly certain this is unique in private hands. Printed on India paper mounted on its original card by Wellstood, Hay & Whiting, New York & Chicago. At top center are Justice and Liberty, flanking a shield that depicts a curious mix of a boat on the water with an agricultural scene behind. At the lower left is an ornate "X" with a female and an Indian, both seated, symbolizing Peace. At the lower right is closed-wing, majestic falcon on a rocky peak. "Capital $200,000" is at the top, bisected by the vignette. Hole Punch Cancelled as made. Another gorgeous example and the only one we have observed. A wonderful addition to the denomination set being built, commencing with the $5 proof. To say that this presents a unique opportunity may seem repetitive, but it is accurate. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $7,050.00. Newman VI (Heritage Auctions, 4/2015), lot 19392. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
