||New Orleans, LA - Citizens' Bank of Louisiana Uncut Sheet of Four $10 186_ LA-15 G26a. Remainder. Very Fine. A full sheet of Dix notes beautifully printed by the National Bank Note Company. At top center, over the Gothic title, the SS Adriatic plows through the stormy Atlantic Ocean while passengers on the top deck brave the strong wind. Swirling scalloped denomination dies are flanking. Engraved by James Smillie after Charles Parsons. Orange-red backs show "DIX" in the die at the center. NEW ORLEANS arcs at the bottom, and sides show curving BANQUE DES CITOYENS / DE LA LOUISIANE. Uncertified, apparently once in a frame and now rather toned. A few light handling folds are observed. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
From Newman X (Heritage Auctions, November 2018), lot 20503, realized $1800.
