||Milwaukee, WI - Bank of Commerce $2 18__ W-445 G4. Proof. PCGS Very Choice New 64. This is a second denomination from the $1A-$1B-$2-$3 proof sheet engraved and printed by Rawdon, Wright, Hatch & Edson, New-York. Printed on India paper mounted on cardstock. The silver dollar vignette theme continues, with two cherubs at the upper right staging a battle across two silver dollars. The left cherub uses his as a shield while the right hand one seemingly "surfs" on his, with spear in hand. Just underneath is a diminutive vignette of two horses. At the lower left is a young lady twirling her hair. Like the $1 proof, Hole Punch Cancelled, with very fine razor slash cancels in the signature space. Printed on India paper, as prepared at RWHE. This is the only impression on this sheet, and the sole proof of the type in private hands. A unique opportunity and beautiful coin vignette type. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
