$2 Proof

Atlantic Bank, Boston


A sheetmate of the $1 in this auction, this $2 shares most of its common design elements but has a different center vignette of an early steam-powered ocean going vessel with one sail furled. Like the $1, this note is printed on India paper mounted on cardstock with small POCs in the signature lines and traces its provenance back to 1966 when it was sold as part of the Lucius S. Ruder Collection. Excessively rare and possibly unique or nearly so.
