After beginning life as the American Bank and operating under this name from roughly 1855-1865, when it became the American National Bank of Hartford. The note’s design is striking, with a great eagle and shield vignette and ships in the background. Two elaborate 100 counters flank the vignette. Seldom seen; an impression of an exceedingly rare design.
