$2 Proof

The Mercantile Bank, Plattsburgh


This $5 design features a large vignette of a sidewheeler river steamer flanked by an oval portrait of Commodore Perry at left and a farmer sharpening a large scythe in front of a six foot tall “2”. This denomination was not represented in the ABNCo Archives holdings and is undoubtedly represented by only a small handful of surviving proofs.
