Bank of Maryland, Baltimore

18 _ _

PMG About Uncirculated 53
This is the largest denomination issued by the bank and it incorporates a somewhat simple design with a center vignette of a sailing ship and a curious vignette of a coiled snake at bottom center, reminiscent of the Revolutionary War motto “Don’t Tread on Me.” The note has small POCs in the signature lines to prevent unauthorized circulation. Decidedly rare with few public appearances.
