$5 Proof

Commercial Bank of Brunswick


A rare bank, this institution was only in operation from 1857 until the Civil War. It had only one emission with the $1 seeing some circulation, yet all of the other denominations are listed as SENC in the 1988 Haxby reference. Two sheets of four, a $1-1-2-2 and a $5-5-10-20, did appear in an ABNCo archives auction. That is certainly not enough notes to satisfy the demand of Georgia collectors. Three beautiful detailed vignettes, that are scarce to rare, are depicted on this $5 note.
Formerly of the Charles R. Pease, Jr. Collection
