This rare Rawdon, Wright & Hatch whaling vignette has only been observed on a few issuers. There was significant whale oil processing and other byproducts manufacturing conducted along the Hudson River in the 19th Century. Thus, here you see a whaling scene — but more tranquil than most and perhaps closer to shore. The vignette also was used on a Poughkeepsie note.
