$5 Proof

Hoboken City Bank, Hoboken


A coal mining scene wraps around the left end, framing a portrait of President Buchanan. The entire note is covered with a red tint that also includes large red-orange and white “V” and “5” protectors. While twelve examples of this denomination and variety appeared in the 1990 ABNCo Archive sale, a fair number had impairments. Reportedly this note may be the nicest of the lot.
