Bank of the Commonwealth, New York

1853

The bank was organized in 1853 and remained in business until 1865 when it became the National Bank of the Commonwealth in the City of New York. The New York Bank Seal is at the top left when the center is dominated by a wonderful maritime vignette. This denomination was not part of the major collection of proofs that were recently offered from this bank.
