Mechanics Bank, New Bedford


Very Rare New Bedford Whaling Note
PMG Fine 12
Another whaling vignetted rarity. The bank was succeeded by an Original Series National Bank. Most notes like this were redeemed. Top center scene based on the Garneray painting, but differently detailed compared with the Danforth, Wright & Co. version. All notes with this vignette are rare to very rare. The impressive layout has a gray cursive “ONE” overlapped with red protector ONE. The upper corners with “1” dies. A clean, problem-free example with strong color.
